YL FOR YOUTH
Would you love to do good for people and planet?
Are you on fire, worried for life on Earth, tired of #boringpeople, want school to #bemoreawesome?
Then here is your dream come true.
It works in 1,000s of schools and towns – so all this will work for you, too.
The scale of what we offer is new for you and your country
This page is an intro for complete newbies from a kid perspective to give you
a solid feel of I CAN DO THIS
and how this adds fun and value to your life.
((( add link to A VERY GOOD INTRODUCTION FROM A YOUTH PERSPECTIVE page))) or 2 buttons: i first time visitor more info from a youth perspective. worth readong

Do you feel like ...
That you would like to be better respected by adults, also by teachers?
That days at school and in town could use a good dose of inspiration, magic and adventure?
Do you sometimes feel, or can you well imagine others to feel isolated in their class, school, town?
Does your heart warm when thinking of leading your life with really lovely friends united by living their love, passion, creativity, courage and going out there – like crews in Harry Potter and the likes?
What if you could really change people’s lives, the land, how children learn at school, also laws, and even industries?
Does your face light up at the idea of working with real hero*ines? At going to visit?
Would you even love to activate your entire generation … because (only) then, it’ll really change things a beautiful lot!?
And would it feel like bday and Christmas combined if this could pave the way to an uplifting professional future?
Well, we have designed YOUTH LEADER’s programs, tools, offers, support and badges with all that in mind.
So, how about putting on your fav’ music and checking this out for a bit.
Please – use a computer, not a phone. Our stuff is so rich in pics and info, it’s really not made for the small screen.
Well then, we look forward to see you rise as a galactic warrior and join the ranks of your phenomemal tribe.
Then you’re in the right place.
YOUTH-LEADER provides you only humanity’s finest
and you will quickly notice that this is not the common overclaim that advertizers use. We have a heartcore benchmark, and very few people you see in media meet it.
What is in for you?
First of all, you experience at spectacular scale and intensity what youth are rocking today, and this will open up your mind and vision for your life, youth and the future. We can create a world of awesome – now! – with today’s Einsteins and Gandhis – and youth have by far the greatest power to do so, and we show you why and how.
It’s not work. It’s not dangerous. It’s fun, embraced from all sides and gains tons of support!
Next, you get to see how youth crews make school days awesome, how – like them – you can take joyful action with friends, take on grand challenges, make changemaking your full-time sport, live your life’s purpose and (later) make your passion your profession. Together with hero*ines and people you love. Teens do it, you can. We help. And there’s tons of caring allies in your region that we help you detect, find and activate. For certain.
In fact, you’ll swiftly turn into a hero*ine yourself!
It usually takes 4-12 weeks for youth using our approach that someone will call them “hero*ine”.
For good reason. Imagine what happens in their next 10+ years … pure epic.
You can live it at your own pace using our resources and backed by our global network. Go!

Unsuspicious but part
it’s for You.
It’s a challenge to get schools and larger institutions to step it up and make service and volunteerism a bigger priority.
I wish there were more opportunities to support the next generation of compassionate leaders.
While we are the future, we need to start acting now, rather than waiting until it is too late.
This could be your classmates
- visits of organizations
- contributions to subjects
- holiday projects

and published a book with tips and tricks for Philanthro-Parties
Students in other towns and countries join in – score $10,000, $20,000 in their first years. Are you joining?
Will you be such a classmate?
And activate 1,000s at other schools?
How can one not do this, considering all the fun that comes with it?
Don’t you sometimes feel like teaming up with friends …
to plan actions for positive change?
to go public on streets and squares
to support project partners
to activate classmates?
to conquer the media
to experience that you are changing lives
to celebrate success?
Many are unsure whether they can do this,
for lack of experience, or because of bad experiences with school, adults and peers. No worries, we know the difficulties and help overcome them.
Robyn has made 30 towns a “Blue Community”: water stays public, is a human right and water in plastic bottles is banned.

Sounds feasible, doesn’t it?
If other 7 and 10-year-olds can do this, then you can, too !!!
What does a Changemaker Student Club do?
That’s up to you. You’ve seen some examples above. But there’s so much more … and we intentionally offer loads of activities to make it easy for you to organize year-round fireworks of action.
Here is few impressions of the abundance available to you – and they are growing.
A cool life, and cool life at school, huh?!
You choose what, how much and how often!
What do teens say about it?
Here is feedback to our LEVEL UP! Crash Course.
Feedback after 90 Min
- is entirely new to them
- is super inspirational
- is important for their generation
- should be present at their school
5-15% are willing to form a team rightaway
60-90% are willing to contribute occasionally
5-15% say that’s not for them
You can guide this Course, too
If 1 student per class joins a Changemaker Club, that’s 20-100 per school, respected by 90% of their peers and equipped with 100s of solutions, tools and tricks and global network. HUGE!
Imagine this at all schools around you
This means you have potential for many teams, many projects at the same time, people help one another – and one makes many new friends.
Our methods are simple and tested on 7 continents
The materials: you can download them, order sets, have schools and partners finance them. Tip: there’s funding for SDG activities
The time of boring is officially over!
Now it is entirely up to you which life you choose to live, which future you choose to form. Frankly, society’s current trend is awful, into Oblivion. But with Changemaker Teams at all schools, we can restore Paradise on Earth for real.
How can one package all of that?
And where to begin?

Dare To Be Great! Polly Higgins, Earth Lawyer
And we continue to evolve these programs together, so that they work smoothly.
I am only 7 - can I join?
We offer this from age 8. Younger ones can apply.
What matters is your spirit, your will.
You can begin with one single activity!
It is like with sport or music – you do a little bit or a lot, like an athlete – for a short time or for a long time. Everything is fine.
I have no experience at all
What matters is your passion and will.
Plus, you have resources, methods, support. Simply follow the guidance in the Crash Course. In a few hours your life will look different.
Can I do own projects and get support?
- understand us, our work and offers
- we know that you know YL
- we see what you have already achieved
Can I do just a few things?
Everybody does what they enjoy doing and how it fits into one’s life.
I don't know ... I'm really a lazy bum
It’s not only about that what YOU do. Let us explain:
Please, please, simply take the Tutorial and continue to the Crash Course. It’s really entertaining! Then, you’ll know
- about the Power of Kids and Teens
- how one can use YL in the family, at school, at work
- that we can shape the Now, and the Future
and THIS KNOWLEDGE you can shake out at any time when you meet people who can tremendously benefit from that specific knowledge. A few words and a link that guides them to us will open up those new views, hope, opportunities, partners for them … got it?
Simply take the Crash Course. It starts with a casual stroll through our online exhibit with a few questions. You can do it!
Can you help me with letters - for school etc?
And YOU at YL - what's important to you?
But those who throw themselves in with all their heart – we give ourselves fully, also in midnight chats! After all, helping scores of young warriors unfold their powers and save Life on Earth is our dream and life’s purpose! the world is dissolving and the majority are zombiesque, show no love for the beauty of this planet, for the animals, have no feeling for the enormity of the suffering, the importance of this time and the greatness that a human soul can grow to … even when they are shown and explained the suffering and what is possible. This is truly a betrayal of the children and all Life on Earth.
So, it is our greatest bliss to so young elven warriors and magical beasts unfold their wings, heal and unite as noble knights under the sacred banner of light!
And of course we’re always there for them when they, or their adult allies – parents, teachers, YL Volunteers – ping us for a video chat to ask about resources and tricks, to ask for tips, when there is need to soothe wounds, when sudden opportunities open up.
That is HOW us changemakers live all the time. #fulltimeforfuture
That means – everybody passionate fits in here!
Natually, athletes receive more attention from our coaches, and more meetings with changemakers. This is natural, since we actively collaborate! It’s not meant to be nasty towards those not involved so much. Our lifetime is simply limited. and we invest it there where it generates the most positive impact for positive change for people and planet.
But : we have our social media, open video meet-ups etc to give everybody access to everything in YL, feel connected AND to grow together. As it fits into your life.
So, if you enjoy what you see on our pages … then you can be part.
That is why there’s the TUTORIAL and CRASH COURSE. Then you know Youth Leadership und YOUTH-LEADER. then you can decide how you wish to enrich your life and the lives of others.
We wish this from the bottom of our hearts, since every contribution is immeasurably precious, and we know that everything that uplifts you, that everything that you see, read, hear, experience here, will at some time in your life – when something happens that activates you – unfold its powers.
We are glad if you carry in you the knowledge of solutions, hero*ines and support like “the light of our beloved star, Earendil, and that it may be a light for you at dark places when all lights go out” … and you will know where to find them.
Such an awakening, as you see in our hero*ines’ stories, also happens suddenly, in Patronus and Lothlorien style. It’s magic, and sacred. And that’s why, my dear, we protect this community from vampires, trolls, Deatheaters, orks and sorcerers.
Only those who pledge and live the oath have access. Only those with a lightful Heart. There are many of those among children and youth!
It can be a little elf, a storm giant, a rumbling bear, a samourai or gamer. Also those with wounded Hearts. Since it means they have one.
With all our life’s experience and knowledge of what’s importance to each and everyone of us, also you, for your next 70 years, we encourage you :
Open your door to the world of Youth Leadership, the solution for a world of peace, bliss and abundance for All!
Take a tour in the real Hogwarts in our Online Exhibition. One must have seen that! One must have experienced it! And then, you see what you’ll do with that.
