Our Approach

Your content goes here. action-oriented

build a bridge to action by your group, for the hero*ine’s initiative, but also locally.

You have rare opportunity to meet a global hero*ine, to think, dream and work together. The encounter offers plenty of options for high impact follow-up activities by a class, club, or individuals following their heart and motivation. It can also be embedded in month- and year-long programs.

Unlocking these potentials is really easy.

This is a lot of high value, and it changes the encounter from passive incompetent superficial listening to an active conversation, with a high dose of  passion and intrinsic motivation = the ingredients of true learning and of action.

No need for a PPT monologue telling the hero*ine’s story (an umpteeth time, so boring for them); we have more time for a real conversation and *what matters to your group* = it’s efficient, meaningful, pleasant for our hero*ines!!

Aim for Action

YOUTH-LEADER’s purpose is to enable youth to take big action, to replicate model solutions globally, to boost hero*ines initiatives, to enable adults to unfold their superpowers, and to make school awesome. Hence, our Speaker program is designed to make action possible by providing the best possible framework.

You and your group are not obliged to follow up with action, since change unfolds organically, and depends on the passion, context etc., but we will all reap best rewards if us and you seek to make life- and world changing action possible with our encounter.

Give Space to Surprise

We seek to enable SELF-ORGANIZATION.

As you know from our publication YL Youth Leadership 101, Changemaker Student Clubs can activate many unexpected local resources and relations.

Our encounter is most rewarding, if you stay open and give space to the expression of individual soft and strong feelings, small and big ideas in your group.

Inspired folks can informally meet YL Staff afterwards

YL Staff are also available on evenings, week-ends and holidays.

As organizer of the encounter, you are not responsible to realize people’s dreams! Your (adult) role is to make inspiration and action possible and to support on-demand. Enjoy seeing the results!

Folks can also self-organize the activities they dream up using the full scope of options that you know from our publication What You Can Do With YL and YL Crash Course Phase 2.

Use as Highlight

The Speaker Meeting can also be a highlight, a creative element giving momentum to a long-term program, such as

  • Project Partnership
  • Global SDG School Challenge
  • West-East European School Partnership; both schools participating in the encounter for a common cause
