Young Changemaking

Young people play a critical role in the global movement to tip society to an everyone a changemaker world — a world where each person can contribute fully to positive change.

Children and young people who have an idea, build a team, and change the world around them serve as examples of a new definition of success growing up. 

Together with our partners, we are on the forefront of a movement to redefine success in growing up and to inspire every young person to become a changemaker.
