Do you care for people and planet, for your future and dreams?
You have good reason to, since this is a very special time. We tell you you shall upgrade to a new skill and action level, but other than most media and inhabitants of the Unsustainable Society, we tell you that the solutions exist and the next level GOOD Society is emerging – you just need to look at the finest changemakers of today, many of them kids and teens – which means that you can do what they do – and #bemoreawesome by doing like them, and also with them, since many are part of the YL Community!
Caring kid – trust us when we say :
The new good civilization’s OPERATING SYSTEM is already in you. As a human born in this era you are synched with it. All that’s needed is that you ACTIVATE IT. We have designed YL for that purpose.
WE GIVE YOU enabling resources, community and environment to make life and the world awesome – in every respect – for others near and far.
With YL, there’s no blabla, protest and waiting … there’s only projects with rapid results on lives and land with much reason to celebrate, many skills learned, friends and headlines made, and perfectly fit for use at school (our daily hangout), building epic cvs and walking the path of teen and twen hero*ines.
With YL you get to GROW UP LEARNING & TAKING ACTION WITH TODAY’S GANDHIS AND GRYFFINDORES … changing lives and land like they do and unfolding their mindset, for a life without fear, bullies or drama but full of bold dreaming, creative solutions, surprise, silliness, manifestation and true friends. You act at your own pace. You pick your causes, challenges, activities and hero*ines – like in gaming.
On your path, you naturally meet benevolent adult allies, ace professionals, kind and honest people that LOVE what you do and will help you in their ways, since it also enriches their lives. By living your most noble self you can live your values and cruise through society.
You open your path to scoring good grades, to lead meaningful professional lives doing good for people and planet with friendly open doors all over the planet… meanwhile co-creating uplifting companionships, blissful families, vibrant neighborhoods, the next level GOOD society and a future of peace, joy and abundance aka paradise.
This IS how today’s HEROINES live,
and that’s why you can, too, by DOING WHAT YOU LOVE doing in their company.
Because 80% of human behavior is shaped by ROLE MODELS, much of it subconsciously, copy-paste. True.
We offer you humanity’s finest role models to grow up with – badass genius huggable hero*ines.
Here’s how that builds up step by step – for newbies to unfold their Inner Hero*ine. Just follow these steps for a few weeks and months and you will see how life, lives and the world change … FOR REAL.

Take high impact starter actions
Exhibit and Crash Course offer immediate action opportunities. They are popular, build team, make impact, generate presence at school and in media; for max impact take the Crash Course with HISAs in Phase 5; however, don’t hesitate to take quick actions now. Swift & simple & fun & exciting!
Form a Team
You can act alone – but for more fun, talent, relations, reach and impact, the goal should be to get friends on board – and peers in the near future as you get active. Start with best buddies. Being yourself is key to success #1!
for all personality types
Silent or loud, shy or flamboyant – this is for everybody! Have a look around YL hero*ines, view their stories, faces and videos – you will see all types and they all move mountains!
Warrior, healer, planter, wonder, builder, siren, party wizard, artist, animal angel, storyteller, adventurer, secret agent
– COME ABOARD!
To imagine your life as a changemaker, check these 3 forms of teams. They differ in pace and intensity.
Which one fits you best?
Take action on favorite causes.
Unite fired up students across classes and years for plenty of year-round action involving the entire school community.
Commit to 3 monthly missions. Make changemaking your sport like an athlete, in 24/7 cooperation with today’s Gandhis and Gryffindores.
Live Changemaking as your Sport.
We suggest that you view doing good for people and planet like a sport. You play it occasionally or full-on – aligned with your passion and lifestyle.
IMAGINE 1,000s of crews, clubs and clans wielding 400+ high impact solutions. With YL Clubs and Clans at all schools, the future will be fine. Is that reason enough to play this sport in ways you enjoy?
The big Advantages
Look, we have a planet to save! And our dreams for life.
An x-mas cookie sale doesn’t cut it, and we must sustain momentum, also on rainy days, during test periods and when we have new crush. We all know a model that does this; Sports Clubs keep us going with weekly training, learning new moves, teaming up to go beyond limits, weekly boss battles, celebration, coaches.
It need not be a closed, formal club. It can be open, non-formal like with skateboarding, learning inspired from pro’s on youtube. That’s precisely what we do! We connect you with today’s greatest changemakers to join, boost and wield their solutions in your home region, also together with them!
Plus, by living it as Student Club at school, sporting YL’s UNESCO and UN University status, we can align it with education, collab with teachers, unite students across years in huge Changemaker Student Clubs and organize year-round fireworks of action involving the whole school community – so our entire generation grows up with today’s Gandhis and Gryffindores. THAT is impact. THAT is change.
So stop being boring, go worlds beyond protesting and waiting for national dirty industry dependent government to pay someone to fix things, and start being awesome #fulltimeforfuture. Wham!
