About

Youth Leadership, (training) young people as change agents in their communities

has been part of civic education in North America for forty years. In today’s context of global, project-oriented learning, social media and emerging crisis, it has taken on sensational dimensions. Youth leaders are popping up everywhere, without training, changing lives, laws, industries and learning culture at already 12,000 schools, moving millions, their events score 6 hours live on main television, and everybody loves it. Wherever people hear and see their stories, they are inspired with hope, can-do feeling and a sense of action. Across age groups, professions and cultures, people agree “This should be at all schools”.

That’s what we are up to, and we involve everyone to make it happen.

Our Team

of genius core members, volunteers, friends, heroInes and allies bravely faces the grand challenge of our time, passionately commits their most precious – lifetime – and thoroughly enjoys the epic experience!

Our Approach

WHAT MAKES OUR ADULT VOLUNTEERS SPECIAL?

Our Adult Volunteers are ordinary caring citizens from college students to home staying mums and high paying professionals. What unites them is their passion for positive change, and with YL they find a unique trove of opportunity to live them, with agency, liberties, satisfaction, responsibility, friends and rich experience:

Our digital and print media, packages for presentations, exhibits and workshops give volunteers a wide scope of options for informal and formal online and onsite activities – on youth leadership and their favorite causes – easily reaching hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands via local news media. Those presenting at schools have opportunity for exciting engagement in their community, supporting inspired teams, mentoring, networking with local partners – a very enriching experience for citizens wishing to make positive changes for youth, society, and build positive, like-hearted community in their region.

Personal initiative is a signature quality of our volunteer engagement creating a grand win-win-win: Volunteers unfold their passion, skill and path, reaching thousands in their communities, we have able, dynamic members, and the planet is blessed with some awesome new changemakers.

Further, the year-round stream of solution stories, news, activities and skype sessions provides learning on-the-go, enriching daily life, the workplace, seeding our media to cafes, canteens, waiting rooms and newsletters, inspiring employees and members, organizing exhibits, fundraisers, Philanthro-Parties, adopting local schools, rewarding and mentoring inspired youth teams.

Our volunteer team members benefit personally, also for their families and work, others for their academic and professional careers, some even for making a living.

are at the heart of our program

operating as teams, student / after school clubs, and YL Warrior Clans

YOUTH BECAUSE
  • they have better global awareness, communication skills, creative dynamics and passion than most adults
  • they like fun, a sense of adventure and doing good
  • young people today have superpowers that are behind their wild success; we unveil them to participants in our programs
  • they have pure spirit
  • at school they have daily macro community of hundreds, free infrastructure and support
  • good access to media and funding, win-win benefits
  • we can reach them all at their daily hangout, schools, for 10+ years
  • they have TIME; 4 to 8 hours a day, and 20 on week-ends, like gamers and passionate athletes
  • this is how impact unfolds
SCHOOLS BECAUSE

It is not enough that we have a few empathic youth, sitting or acting in isolation and being shamed as eco sluts at school. It is in acceptable that our young social entrepreneurs and cultural creatives naturally inclined to commit their lives to healing people and planet are told to care but to sit still until later, only to be told the same by academia and employers. It is inacceptable that they and our society lose out on the vast impact that they can evoke as teenage changemakers, like their globally acclaimed peers. All is good now – we can change it.

Schools are ready, the purpose of schooling, curricula, good learning culture, impact studies, teachers, parents and students all favor student-powered project-oriented learning on global issues – for personal development, life skills, healthy community and more

  • we can reach them all at their daily hangout, schools, for 10+ years
  • at school they have daily macro community of hundreds, free infrastructure and support
  • enabling a multi-faceted, self-guided, nurtured, transformational learning process
  • powered by students, without stress on teaching time, teacher training or finance
  • growing into role models, mentors and assistant teachers
  • equipped with high quality media, presentations, activities and projects
  • benefitting learning culture
  • teachers’ integration of stories and videos as add-ons bring global issues to life and makes changemaking “normal” for all students
  • shaping worldview, as well respect and support for changemakers
  • this is how impact unfolds

Our Core Users

are youth who make changemaking their “sport”

… with as much passion, determination, commitment and time as today’s teen heroInes. Such youth exist at every school. They take weekly and monthly actions on groundbreaking solutions for peace, sustainability and abundance, in partnership with world leading teen and adult changemakers, aligned with UNITED NATIONS Days for greater impact.
