YOUR LIFE WITH YL
unfolds sort of like this – as you wish – at your own pace.
THIS IS TOLD FOR YOUTH.
ADULTS: You have been young. You can imagine how precious it is for youth to grow up like this. You can help them do so. Your Adult Life with YL you can imagine by viewing YL for Adults.
Follow stories, contribute online, do activities. They can also be quite big. As you know, some hero*ines operate alone. As you act, you’ll meet helpers and allies.
As informal team, it is easier to do activities in public spaces, hands-on projects, activate schools, create vivid photos, reach more families and their relations, also at workplaces.
As a Group
you can become more formal, like a sports team. This can boost your scope of skills, commitment, goals, frequency, reach and impact.
you can unite students of all classes in a Changemaker Student Club, form a HQ, reach 100s of students every day of the year, collaborate with nice teachers, activate parents, use school fests, project weeks and more.
Impact quickly grows huge – for example, if each student donates 1 book you have a kids library for a poor village. You can do huge 48 hour sponsor runs scoring 10,000s of dollars / euros. You can book speakers, do global partner projects, youth exchanges.
Hence, we highly recommend to set up a student club – also if you act alone and as adult, as YL Coach (local volunteer). Da kannst Du viele gute neue Freunde gewinnen!
Teams and especially rockstar Student Clubs are very strong. They can connect with other schools, form partnerships with libraries as outer school HQs, with organizations … for visits, trainings, projects. Once you have a solid team, definitely expand your vision across the district to other districts, to the under/priviledged and to the rural region – which has its own needs, potentials, adult allies and youth teams.
An example path
This typical path starts at bottom left, then walks up, always from left to right.
For each step, you find model activities, tools and partners in YL. Plus, you have coaches on demand. Kids do this. You can do it.
You find this poster elsewhere, easy to read.
From CAPITAL LETTER words you can tell that these steps are rather simple and swiftly grow reach, teams, presence at schools, in public spaces and media. Nice, huh? This is exactly what you need to achieve your goals for people and planet.

Our Staff and Hero*ines are living this as adults.
Why would you stop living dreams once you graduate?
The idea is to open this up for you FOR LIFE.
Further, we provide quite extraordinary benefits. You may not consider those a priority, but they can help make life easier with adults, like parents or teachers, and in your not very distant future as a young adult, on your professional path. Developing skills, relations and tools to open doors and paths in life make changemaking even more fun.
A quick personal message.
So … we don’t offer common stuff that leaves youth abandoned to miserably battle through life in a dying civilization, forced to betray their hearts. This is gold.
We hope that you enjoy what we are creating for you and all young people on Earth. We are with you. We create this day and night for the kids and commit #fulltimeforfuture to Life on Earth.
It’s not evident. No one else connects today’s Gandhis with youth, and with schools, and at grand scale, and with benefits, and with adventure, and huggable, and for everybody to take part, and in their favorite ways.
No one told us to do this. We do it because we care for Life on Earth. We do it because we know of 1,000s of genius solutions and the honorable people leading them. We do it because we want to empower those who wish to protect Life on Earth and continue living Good Dreams to have all the means to do so. The VERY BEST that humanity has for them. Because we have a planet to save.
If you appreciate our spirit and what we do and wish to see us strong, to be more awesome, faster, reach further, here is how YOU can help us …
