What if …
all kids in your country had grown up with these stories over the past 20 years?
What if YOU had grown up with them since kindergarten?
> What would society look like, what would citizens live and act like,
compared to current abominable abuse, incompetence and impotence?
> What impact had they made multiplying their hero*ine peers’ deeds a million times?
> What worldview, skills, friendships and relations would those youth have developed?
> How would they use them now as young adults?
> And in their next 60 years as badass qualified citizens?
Shall we lose another decade
or act as fast as we can?
What future do YOU choose for the next 30 years on Earth?
Us at YL are heartcore determined to evoke real change by making humanity’s finest spirit, solutions and action opportunities omni-present in our lives at home, school, public and media and we invite you to get involved in relevant ways – not just a little bit – so that *everything you see on this page* be present in your region within 1 or 2 years.
It’s simple stuff. One just needs to WANT it to happen, since without it, no relevant CHANGE can happen in citizens en masse. YL Crash Course, Academy, Resources and Coaches provide all you need. We LISTEN TO YOU how YOU seek to manifest it in your region and then work together to make it happen. Enuff said.
