Challenge

Due to their age or where they live, many young people around the world lack access to opportunities to develop skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, empathy, adaptability & more; skills crucial for success in modern economies & solving pressing global challenges. They also lack access to grant funding to implement their solutions & contribute to the development of their communities. We aim to reach 1000 changemakers aged 15-30 in 100 countries with access to these skills & funding.

Solution

Changemakers School offers lessons that cover the skills needed to develop solutions to global challenges & create impactful community projects; with the opportunity for graduates to apply for grant funding to implement these projects. The downloadable lessons also include complementary lesson materials & practical lesson challenges. Based online, we effectively overcome the barrier of geography, offer virtual office hours with teachers & virtual networking opportunities with other students.

Long-Term Impact

We aim to train 1000 changemakers aged 15-30 from 100 countries. By developing their skills to effectively create solutions to global challenges and offering each graduate the opportunity to apply for grant funding to implement them, this project will contribute to community development and positively impact lives in 100 countries. Through networking opportunities, the students from these countries will develop deeper cultural understanding and strengthen international cooperation in the future.
