Since its inception in 2011, the Changemakers Collective program has sought to promote youth leadership and development opportunities as a way of building the capacity of the next generation of education and community leaders. We work with young people to help them articulate their vision for change and to empower them to make their unique contribution for the betterment of their world.
We do this by providing them opportunities to be involved in the design and delivery of our innovative, evidence-based and transformative community projects. The program provides participants with professional experience, skills development, mentoring, as well as opportunities for collaborative learning and reflective practice.
As a social enterprise, 100% of our profits go back towards our work in:
creating opportunities for employment/social entrepreneurship for young people from marginalised communities, and mentoring and supporting them as they arise as leaders in their communities
The CHANGEMAKERS COLLECTIVE is a project of the light upon light foundation and operates as a social enterprise.
The Light Upon Light Foundation creates safe and nurturing communities that are rich with the opportunities a young person needs to grow and develop, through a joint focus on holisitic approaches to education, youth leadership and community development approaches.
