The purpose of schooling
Your content goes here.
Use resources in class
as add-ons to bring global issues alive with current, vivid, authentic stories, the finest role models, young and alive, with relevant solutions for young people to wield, empowered to follow their example and create the world they wish to see, and backed by a global community of like-hearted youth and adult allies.
Do it properly.
Give your entire class a solid initiation to youth leadership.
- Introduce them to a wide scope of hero*ines and causes
- Immerse them in vivid stories, rich visuals, videos and music
- Initiate instant actions in support of fav hero*ines initiatives
with fabulous feedback (90+% agree that youth leadership is inspirational, important, should be part of life at school). Unite fired-up youth to form a student club and follow up.
Changemaker Student Clubs
Connect with them to plan ahead for upcoming UN Days of Youth, Water, Peace, Teachers etc. They are your perfect role models and experts with many stories and talents to share – also to coach inspired students.
Year-round Calendar of Action
our global community and media channels sustain a year-round stream of activities aligned with UNITED NATIONS theme days.
This year-round calendar of action provides you an excellent framework, resources, purpose, structure, as well as opportunity to connect with partners in media, civil society, city and citizenry to grow community, reach and impact.
Our youth teams use it to sustain inspiration and a multi-faceted drumbeat of action.
Youth leaders and teams can gain badges for completed missions. They can also be used to set goals, track progress and achievements in club and semester projects at school.
These badges, their impact, and vivid documentation of their activities generating presence in social, news and YL media add value to their CVs.
