Thanks for wanting to do Good and empower the Change Generation!
We have a Planet to save and we all need to #bemoreawesome and YL helps you do so in unprecedented liberty in ways you love. Guaranteed!
Before we look at “what to do”, check out these 3 clips and FEEL what is your favorite vibe.
Why does it matter what vibe you like best?
Because – like picking a new favorite music – or a favorite new sport – positive change is all about the FEELING, or as we like to say, the SPIRIT.
However, these clips shall show you, where you are a silent or thunder type, the spirit and actions are still the same. YL and youth leadership are for You, since doing good for people and planet is far more diverse than JUST HOLDING ELOQUENT SPEECHES; that’s the only stuff shown to you on tv and in history lessons … but in fact – that’s outdated.
YL being super diverse like Changemaker OLYMPICS or a MUSIC FESTIVAL, you will for sure find and pick favorite causes, hero*ines and activities you love. And you will respect and appreciate all others, cheer them on, learn some of their moves and collaborate on occasion.
YOUTH-LED PROJECTS are new to many, but IF YOU LOVE TEEN HERO*INES, then know:
YL is for you !
GENTLE, INTROVERT, HANDS IN THE DIRT, HUGGING
BADASS, EXTROVERT, ANIMATING CROWDS, TAKING ON BOSS BATTLES
