Do what you love, find ordinary happiness, explore Joyhood
Joyhood is a do-what-you-love meaningful, and at times, revealing experience built over the unshakable foundation of communities.
If you want to pursue a passion, discover one, or switch gears in life and do something completely new, come to Joyhood.
Share experiences, interact with others in your same boat, and find useful and resourceful information to advance your passions. Look for answers, teach, learn, get inspired, and inspire others.
We work for people to find and experience that ordinary joy, that simple daily happiness that comes when we do what we love and do it with others because doing it with others is always more fun and better.
Joyhood is organized around theme groups, which are the core of our community life and represent the Joyhood spirit. People who want to discuss their passions, understand how to take them further, gain insights, meet like-minded individuals, and support others with tips, hacks, and tricks so they can thrive in their quests, can join or create a group focused on their passions.
When interacting in our groups, we ask everyone to always remember and follow our house rules.
In the do-what-you-love blog, we produce content about people and passions. How to find them, how to take them forward. We explore life transitions. And sometimes, we tap into bigger topics, like purpose and meaning in life.
We build our content by focusing on the needs and goals that real people have during their journeys and the role and relevance of the community. We cover our stories valuing perspectives of academic, social, and cultural fields like sociology, cultural worldviews, arts, gender and sexuality, disability, and more.
We value content that comes in the format of stories that make people feel represented and included. Stories inspire and help people appreciate diversity and differences.
Our forums are a platform people can use to ask other Joyhood members questions on topics relevant to their journeys.
The forums build bridges beyond a person’s interactions in a group solely focused on their interest. In the forums, people can interact, ask questions, and get insights and varied perspectives from people with different passions.
We created the learning lab for those who have committed to learning, acquiring new skills, or getting knowledgeable about their passions.
We engage instructors who are all in for inclusiveness, empathy, and respect when teaching and understand that everybody learns at their own pace.
The sandbox, an idea incubator
The sandbox is an idea-sharing collaborative space and an incubator where our members can share what they have in mind with the rest of the Joyhood community so everybody can contribute and build on their idea. Then members can find new angles, and perspectives, overcome creative, technical, or procedural blocks, and test and take their ideas further or crack a new one.
