Our Way

YL’s model for activating Youth Leadership at schools and beyond, with win-win benefits for changemakers, Key Professionals, Adult Allies and the citizenry, has been refined and adapted over twenty years.

Our work is inspired by high impact solutions developed and applied by today’s most successful and award winning young and adult changemakers, woven together, adapted and polished up and tweaked and topped off with magic by our no less genius Creative Core Team.

Our process uses a mix of based on common sense good practices, easy to use by ordinary people and professionals, tested with diverse user groups in diverse settings for diverse purposes on all seven continents, also Antarctica, on board of an international expedition.

In short, we help activate 5 Essentials for High Impact Youth Leadership – role models, changemaker student clubs, project partners, coaches and learnspaces – and enable use of 35 Building Blocks – tools, partners, platforms, programs and community – to combine like add-ons. They equip ordinary individuals or groups to organize year-round fireworks of actions involving thousands of youth and citizens, with strong presence in schools, media and public spaces, and cascading impacts on lives and land, learning, laws and industries. Simply said, doing what hero*ines do, like them and with them.

A must for every kid on the planet today

- Kjell Kuehne, Leave It In The Ground

The epitome of Youth Leadership.

- Ken Jones, environmental educator legend

Our success is defined by 6 billion ordinary humans’ ability to achieve their good dreams for people and planet by using our tools and support.

YL’s work creates an ecosystem of activated youth and adult allies on fire to make concrete tangible changes for lives and land. As in sports or music class, our focus is on enabling self-organization as individual and team, “with many balls or notes to play, many options to play together, and to create own compositions” to get shared and used by the Tribe for the greater good and achieving our common dream of a good world for all.  

Our user community is united by common priorities, as free individuals, without official organizational membership. We organize globally using simple digital community technologies and platforms, and locally using informal gatherings, as well as non-formal or formal use in schools, businesses and institutions as useful.

Our common bottom line is (a) focus on tangible impact using proven high impact practices pioneered by recognized teen and adult hero*ines, (b) positive worldview of youth leadership and (c) a set of activities, methods, building blocks and programs acquired in the tutorial and d) trust established by certified completion of the crash course and advanced qualifications with licensing as YL Coaches, and (e) to create win-win benefits for everybody involved to better achieve their personal, idealist and professional aspirations. 

Without any pedagogical qualification but the online tutorial, I gave presentations in three classes. Each was inspired, each wants me to return to learn what they can do. The teacher said this is what school should always be like.

- Matthias, Germany

My 10 week youth training took off in week 8 when I used YL stories. Two weeks later, the group organized an interactive poster exhibit. All teachers and students agree that it was the best of the entire school project day.

- Holger, Germany

The most energized lesson of my career in teaching English for Adults.

- Grzegor, Poland

Even the most quiet ones had something to say. Students ask how they can get involved.

- Teacher, Korea

From inspiration and involvement to mentoring and collaboration.

We work closely with True Hero*ines, with quality organizations, social entrepreneurs and social businesses, with Key Professionals sharing our core purpose “to enable Able Active Caring Citizens” – teachers, librarians, journalists, councillors and civil society, caring adults from all walks of life, such as parents, business owners, entrepreneurs, young adults – and of course with children and teenage youth, who are at THE HEART of all our work, organized as local Youth Crews, Student Clubs and Warrior Clans united by real-time communication, local meet-ups and summer camps.

Our methodology guides newbies through a set of basic actions – like when people learn a new sport or music. From the beginning, we publish their achievements in our community and educational media, and we invite their contributions to co-creating YL, and gradually we support their own project ideas developed in response to their environment’s challenges, problems, potentials and opportunities.

2 hours ago, I had no clue. Now, I feel absolutely confident that I am able to run big campaigns.

- Youth, Crash Course Phase 2

For the first time, I feel like meeting family. We do not get together to chat, but for a purpose.

- Adult, local chapter

We need YL at all of Canada’s schools.

- Emma Mogus, World's Children's Prize MC

Concrete vision and relevant outcomes.

Our work enables youth en masse to activate their generation’s innate operating system wired for the evolutionary needs of this era, to make their upgrade to an Active Caring Citizen, learning and wielding today’s Einsteins’ and Gandhis’ solutions at local level, and thereby co-creating the next level GOOD civilization guided by the aspiration to #bemoreawesome

No longer minions, voters or an expert activist, but a generalist changemaker with experience in dozens, even hundreds of high impact solutions, tools, tactics and partners in all spheres of society. A virtuous human, known and respected by the citizenry for a track record in achievements and the good priorities for the good of people and planet, of all species alive today and generations to come. Today’s noble knights, embodying universal ethical values at the core of sacred traditions, through action living #fulltimeforfuture

Your kind of thinking is very rare

- Polly Higgins, Eradicating Ecocide Campaign
