You, see there is a tremendous lot of action in YL! It is so inspirational! Our members love this feeling of being part of a truly clean and promising movement, of making a welcome contribution, inspiring people with new hope and opportunity – especially at schools – of making a really felt impact, and experiencing the momentum when a shared story sparks ideas in neighbours, friends and collagues.
Whatever you do – it matters! You can interact in seconds on social media, give presentations and inspire your peers, school and community; Keep in mind how Craig’s reading of the story of child rights activist Iqbal Masih sparked his school club initiative that today involves half a million activist kids in 10,000 schools. Your sharing of stories will do the same in various ways – we have seen it over the years!
It’s more than one would imagine.
We have truly set out to make YL a massive changemaking machine; equipping everybody with the tools and tipps used by humanity’s most successful kid, teen and adult changemakers, backed by a community of hundreds of superhero/ines!
Plus, you can get directly involved in the most amazing initiatives; by contributing targeted fundraisers to our hero/ines, by amplifying campaigns online and onsite, you can replicate their model solutions OR inspire youth groups to do so (how awesome will it be to see the fruits of simply sharing a story?!).
You can even meet and collaborate LIVE with the world’s most famous changemakers – it’s true – on a daily basis, and powerfully evolve your own changemaking skills. It happens naturally by simply inter/acting with our community. After all, you are part of the team, and that’s what teams and families of heart do, right?!
It’s new, unprecedented, therefore we want everyone to see it to believe, embrace and start using it!
Once in motion, it sets of cascading changes in your community, a full-spectrum positive change movement, replicating scores of fantastic model solutions in a million places, with pure youth in the driver’s seat, supported by caring adults!
When we talk “new civilization”, we really mean it. And that we can achieve it in our lifetime, even in ten, twenty, thirty years.
Take a quick look at authentic, visual impressions of playing YL to the fullest! Even if you only connect loosely with us on facebook, you’ll enjoy seeing what is happening in schools. It’s amazing! VIEW YL IN FULL-SPECTRUM APPLICATION
