Goal

  

The goal for you as a member of PLUS is to learn more about yourself. Therefore PLUS has split aspects of life into 7 main categories which we call Roots. We then paired them together into larger Stem categories. Each Root has 100+ activities (© 2015) for you to try which are listed under the menu with some activities with links to local businesses to help you complete them. You are to go out and complete an activity and make a simple post on your profile of what you did, what you thought, and add photos and other media to show your experience. 

Once you post an activity, you will earn points. Points are awarded depending on difficulty, pre-assigned, and are used so you may access and obtain products in the store, in determining top users, and granting awards. Points are added separately for each Root. To complete a Root you are shooting for a total of 1,100 points per Root. Once you complete all 7 Roots you are declared a PLUS Master Elite. 

PLUS hosts activities to have more community interaction in completing activities. Feel free to give suggestions about all the concepts and activities as including more activities, re-assigning points, which events to host, etc. We are always striving to improve the experience!
