GIVE YOUR STUDENTS, TEACHERS, PARENTS & PARTNERS THE LEARNING THEY LONG FOR
Teen hero:ines masterfully embody civic and professional skills, competencies and experience.
YOUTH-LEADER’s school programs help make student-led project-, experience and impact-oriented learning culture part of life at school with fun and engaging lessons, modules, videos and activities, engaging teachers, students, parents and partners. Let’s get this entire young generation excited about their amazing new powers to co-create thriving societies of peace, joy and abundance already – and especially! – during their school years.
MEDIA & PROGRAMS
We provide educational materials to help you plan fun lessons about the importance of forests. Teach students how trees affect the 6 pillars: air, water, biodiversity, social impact, health, and climate.
SPEAKERS & PROJECT PARTNERS
When you sign your class, club, group of friends or school up to fundraise with One Tree Planted, you have the ability to make a big impact. Every dollar donated plants one tree, and collectively, schools can drive environmental change!
BADGES & CERTIFICATION
Our modules cover the 6 pillars of Why Trees Matter, Global Forest Watch, Green Innovation, Carbon Footprint and more. Mix and match components that can be introduced depending on your individual classroom interests and needs.

Teen hero:ine role models and immediate action opportunites with rapid results play a vital role in awakening students’ inner motivation, courage and passion to turn their love for people and planet into action with urgent optimism.
This mini crash course introduces students to youth leadership, essentials of an enabling environment, and their opportunities with YL’s tools and global ecosystem of partners for action in class, clubs and community.
Teachers are our generation’s most important allies. They decide, if we get a chance to learn to create a good world, or not.
CRAIG KIELBURGER, WE, CANADA – student clubs at 22,000 schools
Our youth deserve humanity’s finest role models and solutions – like we use Mozart, Leonardo da Vinci and Olympians – in music, arts and sports education. Not only classics, but also emerging arts and sports.
For reversing extinction, restoring sustainability, peace, community, mental health and good governance, $50 cookie sales won’t cut it. You are to help them master these matters like their hero:ine peers do.
REAL WORLD RELEVANCE
Causes that matter. Solutions for problems. Living these solutions by changing lives and land of real people.
REAL LIFE RELEVANCE
Learning relevant skills for their personal, idealist and professional paths. Developing civic and professional skills, competencies and experiences, verified by PEARL standard Badges.
CUTTING EDGE COLLABORATION
Would you have your students meet Einstein and Gandhi, if they were alive today? YES.
You can engage with over 100 world experts and changemakers and contribute to their ventures.
Your actions will show up in YL Magazine, social media, your local news media and CVs.
Teachers are busy, and youth leadership is about youth organizing their activities. The goal is:
Your fired up students can form Changemaker Student Clubs with access to our global community.
Note: It's like in Physical Education
Remember, that Physical Education classes aim to nurture health, fitness, social relations and competencies … which cannot get achieved in mere 2 weekly hours.
Hence, the aim of Phys. Ed. classes is “to show the broad scope of sportive activities, and give students’ a taste of each particular magic, so they can find their passion and decide which activity to pursue in life at more hours and intensity to achieve a relevant results for health, fitness, and social relations – formally in clubs, and non-formally with friends in diverse setting from halls to beach – with adated rules and purpose (fun, match, competition) agreed upon (democratically) for everybody’s upliftment.”
This is precisely how to approach changemaking! YL enables you to show the broad scope of changemaking for all character types (not just eloquent speakers), and enables self-organization, with classic moves, freestyle and own creations, adapted to all sorts of settings. Like sports, YL provides access to a “global federation of like-hearted practitioners”, coaches, support, training, certification and liberty to form “local leagues” and spin-offs with own rules.
BEYOND SCHOOL FENCE & HOURS
Students = Youth are instantly able to act at all time. After all, like gaming, arts and sport, hero:ine stuff happens in afternoons, evenings, on week-ends and holidays, committing many hours resulting in huge impact, good vibes in town and precious relations with many allies and well deserved news coverage.
BEYOND SCHOOL YEARS
This lifestyle, their rich CVs, know-how, experience and relations near and far naturally open up horizons, travel, learning journeys, internships and professional avenues.
“The idea of education is not to turn us into your kind of adults; but into better adults than you have been.” – Adora Svitak
§1 - THE PURPOSE OF SCHOOLING
Education Law’s §1 explains and justifies why children are obliged to attend school. As an example, Berlin’s Law:
text goes here
In short, to nurture Able, Active Caring Citizens of thriving, ever evolving libertarian-democratic societies, able to co-create peace, joy and abundance for all, with heatlhy natural ecosystems, and in harmonious collaboration with a global family of nations.
Take a look at the news and you know that all adult generations are failing across the board. 70 years of subject teaching have not nurtured this fundamental competency. The world’s dirty corporations and governments are run by graduates of “our finest elite universities”, incompetent and lacking good character. Germany, the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, all abominations dissolving the web of life and sustaining gross suffering and abuse, near and far.
On the other hand, teen and twen hero:ines doing projects with high tangible impact on lives, land, learning, laws and industries masterfully embody this new Able Active Caring Citizen, and also Good Governors; view serial history making youngest state senator Chloe Maxmin.
THE METHOD IS SIMPLE and KNOWN from 50 years of youth leadership in civic education in the USA and Canada and in Experiential Learning culture from pre-school to higher education. It works at thousands of schools, it can work at yours.
Teaching is the most important profession for a good future, and we demand that you live up to it, and we give you everything you need to achieve. Go!
YOU CAN HAVE ALL THIS AT YOUR SCHOOL
