How can newbies get started?

Where can youth find training?

How can 3 billion students be part?

How can all of us make that happen?


as you already know.

The world’s finest teenage hero*ine stories are a must for every child of today.

From bedtime reading to school and instagram.

They need to see the full scope of causes, actions, tools and support, including adult changemakers.



‘LIVE’ as


plays an important role.

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 also true for Doing Good :

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

One more thing…


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.

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

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.”
