So … all this beauty is happening in the world. And most people agree that this should happen everywhere. So, how can it happen in your life and region?
We have stories, films, music, and I know most of these people personally. They share the dream that our entire young generation should be empowered to lead rich lives of purpose, passion, friendship and adventure like the youth featured in this exhibit.
As you can tell from the exhibit, we can support changemakers, book speakers and coaches, use these stories and activities at schools, in our professions, we can form youth teams, run campaigns … so all we need is to make it conveniently accessible and usable for everyone.
With YOUTH-LEADER, we have bundled up resources, tools, methods and support services for all of you to amplify youth leadership in the world and make it part of your life.
Check it out!
First, everybody should know.
We can take the stories home, to study them, have them close by our bed, and for the little ones grow up with the spirit of Youth We Can from an early age.
With Family & Friends activities,
to make changemaking part of daily life… coloring, planting, music/al, nature walks, restoration, photo, film, art …
At home, in the community, in the region
It should also be public
and long-term, so that many people see it, converse, connect with others.
Schools, public libraries, living museums, cities, community centres
love teen hero*ines and active citizenship, and to connect with the citizenry, youth and schools.
One can do this any time, but for public displays one can very well team up with the City for UN Day of Youth, Earth Day, Spring Of Sustainability, SDG Campaigns etc.

What people say
Germany: “Students and teachers agree: the exhibit was the best thing at the School Project Day. Our principal decided to set up three changemaker courses for 8th grade students to thart the next semester.”
India: “The posters were a smash hit with the students. I was so tired in the morning, but after this experience, I am full of energy. You should have been there to see it! Our principal decided to set up a long-term exhibit.”
What school teachers say
Korea: “I used some of the stories in class. It’s been one of the most energized lessons of my teaching career. Even the most quiet students had something to say. Students ask how they can get involved.”
What adult educators say
Poland: “I used the cardgame in my Business English for Adults Class. To be honest, the group is lazy and more into flirting. I distributed cards and tasked people to explain their hero*ine to their neighbour. I have never seen them so focussed and passionate! They really wanted to get this story across. And as you predicted, there’s stories for every type of person, eco or business. After the session, a big entrepreneur stopped at the door and told me he was was really impressed by Gabrielle’s entrepreneurial spirit. It’s been a really amazing experience.”
What psychologists say
New Zealand : “This would be useful for work with challenged youth dealing with mental illness.”
Poland : “This would be good in prisons, especially with young delinquents.”
Australia : “YOUTH-LEADER is a blessing for parents and families.”
Are you just kids? Ordinary citizens? That’s fine. You can do that. Or step up as a local team or YL Coach (view Tutorial + Crash Course below) as part of the worldwide YL network.
Next, very important – how do we get from Inspiration to Action?
There’s definitely need for help. And it is surprisingly SIMPLE.
We can find an enormous lot of guidance in the success stories and secrets that we have learned from hanging out with our hero*ines and genius folks.
We have bundled up a Crash Course – for individuals and for groups that propels you into the amazing world of youth leadership and gives you an incredible lot of knowhow and advantage over … everybody else … enabling you to bring hope, tools and opportunities to others!

Here's what youth say
90+% of students agree : super new + super inspirational + super important for their generation + should be at their school + 10+% willing to get active right away, 70+% willing to be contribute and be part on occasion. That is spectacular results! And you can guide this 1 or 2 session course. Easy. One can also make it a project week, or do 4 phases.
And you can do this. Easy!
Ponder this ...
Of course, not all students will join a changemaker student club, but they all respect and back young activists now. If just 1-2 per class join, it makes 20 to 100 at a school! Wheew, that’s one formidable force, and equipped with tools for 400+ year-round actions and an enormous global support network of hero*ines!
YOUTH’s daily hangout being school
we provide Student Clubs with tons of support to do everything that teen and adult hero*ines do :

regular action – activating their school for year-round action on loads of causes
fulltime athletes in close cooperation with changemakers all over the planet
Team Headquarters with Flair
Just like music band rooms and teenage rooms have posters of their hero*ines, a Changemaker HQ requires proper ambience!
We got that to get started.
You know that behind each face is a story
… a success model and guidance to copy-paste an enormous solution to your city and wherever needed. That’s strong.
This knowledge must not get “out of sight out of mind” hidden away in books. It has to be out there, in our faces – also these posters serve us introduce newbies and guests to the world of changemaking and to what your crew is doing.
Honor it. Get it. Use it.
ADULTS’ daily hangout being the workplace
we provide lots of resources, tricks and opportunities to inspire and involve colleagues, customers, trainees, staff and even run projects and campaigns with changemakers.
We unite adults in the Boost! Club

Each of us can activate 1+ schools around us by seeding info to caring teachers, caring parents, caring students or by even giving Crash Course sessions #1 and #2, in one class, inspiring youth to spread it following your example, or on a project day, week, school fest, UNITED NATIONS Theme Day …
