See how teens have been changing lives, laws, industries and learning at schools at record scale for over twenty years, already! You have only seen a few examples on big media (link), and others are far more important for you.
A single person at school can reach 100s of young people, using the proven steps of young changemakers and their adult allies – and activate a school (link). The Changemaker Student Club (link), wielding 400+ tools of hero*ine peers, can easily do 10 actions per month, 100 per year, and each worthy of news coverage. We have tested this across age groups and cultures on all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Any caring teacher, student and citizen volunteer can do it!

In good company.
The youth and adults featured in our media and programs share more than 300 awards among them, have raised millions, some raise $15,000€ on a single day, have 1,000s of volunteers, teams at many schools, have run UN programs, scored billions of media impressions, changed many laws, and keep growing their movements, with people like you … whose company and counsel do you seek in these times for learning how to create REAL positive change?
See, this isn’t little stuff. This is a combination of the forces of 100+ of the world’s most powerful ventures, and we are bringing them together at the intersection of schools, media and millions of caring citizens, thereby amplifying their potentials.
The world’s genius folks have prototyped all the solutions we need, ready to wield for citizens. The new good society is already happening! So stop staring in morbid fascination at the toilet bowl of history as the ghoulish unsustainable society goes down the drain, spewing and howling.
Instead, lift your gaze to the fresh, the new, and qualify yourself for living it, so you don’t go down the drain. Don’t you feel the pull around you? With robust steps, you can upgrade yourself, help others, and protect your region from suffering.
Yes, the old is crashing, and like WW1 and 2, which pooped out monarchy, torture, fascism and genocide, this crash teaches people to say No to dirty industry, and to see nature as sacred once again. You too will go through that learning process. We at YL have already completed it. We can coach others to level up.
But this is about YOU : why put up with the abominable suffering, sit idle and thereby force it on all kids in your region, if you can create and live the new ?! Fella, the grand changemakers can’t come down and play hero for your town. That is your mission. This is your lifetime to #BeMoreAwesome
I am being frank – because the world’s animals are screaming for help, and the kids of the future are watching in horror. They all depend on you and your people.
I dare to not baby you – because I know you have it in you, and YL offers you all you need, the magic tricks, potions, wands and partners you need. You are not alone, Allies will appear as you walk.
So, update your worldview, catch up with Youth Leadership and start living it. We have a planet to save, and we have not come here to fail. Kids are doing it. You can.
Once again, it’s simple : Sign up, learn on the go. Discover youth leadership. Take quick actions, get a real feel, build a bond. Browse our platforms, choose what inspires you best, follow your flow. Upgrade with the Tutorial and Crash Course. Join and / or form teams. Observe pleasant stuff unfold. We’ll shape the future #speedrun style, with ease, once you realize I Am The Creator.
