Summary

Rehabilitating victims of ISIS, providing free health screenings for cervical and breast cancer, connecting small holder farmers to markets & facilitating the entry of 200+ street children into school - these are stories of just 4 of the young leaders we support. Global Changemakers is a global pioneer in supporting youth-led development. Through skills development, capacity building, networking and grant funding, we support young leaders addressing the most pressing challenges in 177 countries.

Challenge

Recent years have shown a surge in young people worldwide determined to create a positive impact and have proved that young people have the power and the potential to change the world. Their innovative ideas and solutions are not hindered by bureaucracy or limiting beliefs about what is possible, but rather a lack of relevant support, skills and resources.

Solution

We work to address this challenge through weekly online training sessions, online resources and a 13-week virtual mentorship program for young people at all levels. We also offer a targeted, yearlong program for 60 of the highest potential and high impact young leaders globally, with support and grant funding available during and after the program. To date, we have provided in person and online training to thousands of young people world wide and provided grants to 330 youth-led projects.

Long-Term Impact

Through our unique programme and offerings, we are able to develop young leaders at an unparalleled global scale and offer targeted support to youth-led initiatives. Evidence and reporting from our Changemakers across the world has shown a demonstrated ripple effect from these initiatives in their communities. We have seen members of our network use grant funding to start and/or scale organisations that are still in operation years after their participation in our programme (visit our website).
