Before we start
we have to know the *context & setting* that we act in
School, the world, media and young people are not what they used to be
ten, twenty, thirty years ago. Few people are yet aware of the awesome things going on, how parents, teachers and journalists love it, the magic tricks behind mega success stories, and the awesome potentials of taking this to scale. We combine the best from each field in our resources, tactics and programs, enabling you/th to evoke new enormous impact. It’s simple, but you gotta know, be smart and use it like a boss. Here’s what’s new, working and winning :
I. SOLUTION STORIES
told in vivid visuals, conveying authentic changemaker spirit = “positive news media culture” fill people with hope, passion and a sense of action. It’s especially true for teen hero stories and their facebook streams show how it works. It’s also good for mental health and active citizenry. No-brainer, really. We all feel it watching their clips (view film no.1). Studies prove it, and major media notice that solution stories generate more clicks, shares, merry comments. Teachers love it, too. It’s NEW, and we work with the leaders in the field.
II. YOUTH LEADERSHIP
There are hundreds of badass teen changemakers changing lives, laws and industries. It’s NEW in history. They pop up by themselves, others join. No adults involved, except support on-demand. We know this! Among the many individuals, there are a few that have youth-powered organizations with chapters at many schools, cities, countries. Those are the success models that we need to look at for achieving our goal of global presence at schools.
NEW : FL SCHOOL STUDENTS
“These young people give me hope” “They act like adults while adults act like kids” reflects what millions of adults feel on tw, insta, fb, CNN, NYTimes, European media… Support by Cara Delevigne 41 mio followers, Clooney + Winfrey $1 mio for #marchforourlives, nationwide student school walk outs, within 1 week of the school shooting organized BY the students. Follow the core group of #neveragain live on https://twitter.com/Emma4Change https://twitter.com/cameron_kasky https://twitter.com/al3xw1nd as history unfolds. This is NEW : The worldview change on youth, youth awaken to “we have to bring change”, adults love it, support. Mega synergy. YOU can experience the same for your causes and region.
III. YOUTH-POWERED ORGANIZATIONS
Xiuhtezcatl’s sensational role model example communicated via his crew’s music, wild successes in stopping pesticides, fracking, coal ash, lawsuits, an intergenerational climate movement, speeches at schools, the UN, festivals, talkshows re-defines young people (view film no.2). This is NEW! The Earth Guardians organization grows at record speed with 1,000+ crews on six continents.
IV. YOUTH LEADERSHIP AT SCHOOL
Craig’s WE have crews in 12,000 schools, making “creating a good world for all” part of (service-) learning culture with global partners. WE has 250,000 members, 25,000 teachers are involved, inspired by Craig and Marc’s example. Their events score six hours live on television (view film no.3). Dude, this is NEW, it’s huge, it’s the new 60s but way better. Not demanding, but doing what needs doing. View what teachers and students say. This works everywhere!
Both Craig’s and X’s model show a combination of (1) vividly told solution stories (2) led by HEROineS*, with (3) instant action opportunity and (4) resources and guidance for self-organization and (5) a stream of year-round action. This combination inspires, equips and empowers young people with a mix of passion, hope, courage, vision, a sense of service, can-do feeling and the decision to join and found local chapters. “Young people wish to be part and help people and planet. What they need are knowledge of meaningful steps, tools and support on demand.” * Note : role models shape 80% of human behavior !! much of subconsciously !!
VI. BUILDING ON THESE MODELS
The models mentioned demonstrate the way to go – the precious benefits experienced by youth and teachers, people and planet – and what to add to take it to even greater scale, scope and impact. The big fat magic trick is to add the success models of many other teen and adult changemakers with transformational solutions, social entrepreneurship, social business, changing laws and industries, their tools, live services… Boom!
can spark these things even as one person – just like inspired students who start a 1,000 piece book drive worth $10,000 – just like presenters of WE and Earth Guardians – and you’ll win members, allies, spark local chapters. Your key asset : your passion combined with causes, stories, good visuals, action opportunities = #alwayswinning. To-do: GET INFORMED on youth leadership, heroInes, solutions, your tools and support. Our YL Crash Course and publications are the fastest, fattest intro you can get.
