Meeting

SPEAKERS

In North America, is it common to meet teen and adult changemakers LIVE at school, events and via skype.
In North America, is it common to meet teen and adult changemakers LIVE at school, events and via skype.

This is how Craig and Xiuhtezcatl have started their enormous movements.

Teachers appreciate them as role models.

Students get inspired and form local crews.

What we know from music and sports is true here also :

  • nothing is more inspiring than to experience ”stars” live
  • to feel their energy
  • to hear insights and anecdotes
  • Q&A
  • planning activities
  • celebrating achievements together

 

Young people want to help. and by God the world needs it. (maybe book quote)

We give young people the tools and support they need to (use from their website) Craig, WE Schools

Okay, great, I want this, of course.

I know that I can include role models and solution stories in my subject teaching, and charitable activities on occasion.
s

I am a good teacher, but not an animator.

I am happy to give some extra time for this, but I cannot run this. Students will have to run this.
s

I wish to see this happen, but my time is limited,

so I need that students can self-organize activities.
s

I love it, but we don't have such organizations here.

I need tools and methods to activate students and partners.
How inspire students in their diversity of interests?

How empower inspired students to self-organize activities?

How can they sustain inspiration and flow of activities?

Where do they find support?

And how can I get this started, informally, with my class, my couple of teacher friends who share my views, and with our limited financial resources?

We hear you. We design our programs with all these thoughts in mind,

to connect you to organizations as above, and provide additional things you need … plus extra magical stuff!

Form student club, set up HQ, use exhibit, organize lemonaid stands at school and in public … simply following the example of their peers.
Starting with the basics, like with a new sport, and taking ever greater steps, then freestyle.

They meet live with feelow teams around the globe, with changemakers and YL staff for tips, tricks and launching campaigns together
Students can do a little bit, occasionally, regularly or full-time, aligned with their schedules and priorities.

One more thing…

SUMMERCAMPS

for young changemakers

(are a rare thing!)

Time at school with changemaker student clubs is great.

But how enjoy one’s HOLIDAYS?

Summer camps are tricky.

Which changemaker wants to spend time who don’t share one’s passion for people and planet? Sports camps are not satisfying.

And what about staying in touch with newly won friends? 

For young changemakers there’s a new kind of exciting camps, where they meet their kind AND real heroInes, learn about global issues, methods, explore nature in adventurous excursions, vegan cuisine, yoga, bodywork and bushcraft, unfold talents and potentials, develop campaigns and stay in touch after camp via internet and projects.

YEA Youth Empowered Action CAMP, USA

is a unique and inspiring summer leadership program for youth 12-17 who want to make a difference in the world. A week-long sleep-away program in a beautiful camp location, YEA is designed to be a fun and transformative experience that builds life-long friendships between youth with similar interests in bettering their community and society.

WE TAKE ACTION CAMP
Canada and USA

unites WE Team members (and newbies?) to deepen their knowledge of global issues, learn methods, project planning, unfold talent, and enjoy community

YL WARRIOR CAMP
Europe, Global

unites youth active in Change Generation Rising in epic nature setting to discover the planet & protect the planet.

Well experienced on global issues and projects through CGRISING, campers experience a crackling  immersion in nature with like-hearted youth, learn, share, bond, heal, plan inter/national campaigns with new allies.

Epic staff : YL crew, hero*ines, adventurers and surprise guests

Options for cool changemaker parents to be part!

“With such skills

LIFE is wide open.”
