For online and home activities we have

coronaTION ACADEMY

You can do a lot by yourself. After all, many hero*ines in our line-up act as individuals. However, as you get people you like involved in your quest, you score more reach, fun, impact for the people and planet you love. Our tools help you.

You can go bigger.

The next natural step is to get friends involved. This can already during your Crash Course, as you share stories and organize first activities.

We all spend time at school. This is where we find hundreds of youth, every day, for years.

With YL, you can build a big crew with highly diverse talent, skills, resources and relations + evoke year-round multi-faceted activities, involving a huge supportive community of peers, parents and partners of your school. Ace, aye?

Why school?

Think about life at school as you know it.

Imagine yourself a Gryffindore crew. What would your fav’ school days be like? 

Could it be filled with more friendship, excitement, interesting learning, respect, cooperation, doing beyond text and talking, international actions and more?

All this becomes true by making youth leadership part of life at school.

Why school matters

Some students we like, most we don’t even know. There’s folks who care for people and planet in all classes, all age groups, and also among teachers. Activating them unlocks several goals that are dear to all of us: more allies, making school days awesome, educating and involving our entire young generation on youth action to create a good world for all.

Also, unfold superpowers …

Also,

… collab with teachers, respect, badges, define your learning journey, projects

… shape the learning culture of future students, that’s 10,000s of youth over the next years

… win awards, set an example, activate other schools

This is about more than specific projects. We change worldview and learning culture. We shape society and the world, the future. 

When it’s well done, the example and message can ripple nationwide – via media, conferences, trainings …

Keep in mind : Craig started as 1 kid, then 12 friends, and now he has teams at 22,000 schools.

We are activating YL changemaker student clubs at schools all over the country and planet! They all work towards this grand change by simply being #awesome 

You have the tools to activate many through #bemoreawesome Crash Courses and forming Changemaker Student Clubs wielding our crazy lot of tools for year-round fireworks of action changing lives, land, learning, laws and industries at record pace and scale.

That is THE BIG VISION to change people and the world fast. Let’s do it #speedrun style!

If student clubs are illegal, school super outdated strict and formal and teachers boring, failing their legal professional duty, societal purpose, moral obligation to youth, and sacred service to Life on Earth  …

… one can also act informally, among students, or via parents, teachers, and outside school to make first activation contact with your fellow youth … and then communicate informally at school during breaks and recess … even in places where student clubs are illegal.

Keep in mind : A great part of changemaking happens beyond school hours anyway, like sports and music, in afternoons, evenings, on week-ends and holidays. We have solutions like LearnSpaces and tactics for all of that that you can explore on YL FOR SCHOOL, YL FOR CITIES and LEARNSPACES pages

Still, a school that embraces and supports changemaker Student Clubs is the ultimate training ground – so take the challenge to make it happen.

Once again, we are here to help.

Crash Courses work wonders

Our Group Crash Course works wonders to inspire school classes, spark first actions and unite fired up youth in a team – the Changemaker Student Club.

Your own Crash Course experience with stories and videos tells you why 95% of students agree that High Impact
Youth  Leadership

  • is new to them
  • is highly inspiring
  • is important for their generation
  • should be present at school

and 10+% are willing to get involved in a club, and 70+% willing to support on occasion for causes and activities they like.

That’s good reason to be confident that the course will go well in class, huh? 

You can guide this Crash Course.

Your personal Crash Course asks you to organize one – it can be with friends or family – to make the experience of going through the steps and observe people’s reaction and ideas.

We believe that with that experience, you will know that you can guide this Crash Course yourself in your class. If you are unsure, try with another friendly group.

For school, here’s 5 options:

  1. If you feel good and have fun in your class, do it there.
  2. If you don’t feel so easy, but wish it to be run in your class, and trust a teacher, ask this teacher to organize one (without mentioning you). You can volunteer to assist in its preparation.
  3. If you don’t feel at ease in your class, organize one for a younger class of your trusted teacher. Peers 2+ years younger usually respect older students as competent badasses and role models. They don’t know you’re new to this + your short but rich experience with your personal Crash Course gives you a massive advantage + own stories to tell + the focus of attention are the powerful stories, videos, music and exercises, and they naturally inspire.
  4. Organize one at a School Fest, Project Day or Project Week. In a Project Week, students will expect to, and want to take action from day 2 or 3 … you can do it as newbie, but experience comes in handy 
  5. Call in a YL Coach to organize a Crash Course

If you can’t organize a Crash Course, you can take the steps used by successfull teen changemakers

  • a presentation
  • LemonAID stand
  • FUNdraiser, Philanthro-Party
  • use an occasion like school fest, UN Day …

If you’re on fire, but still insecure, or your school totally sucks, or you feel you need a letter of support etc. do not hesitate to get in touch.

We are here to help.
