Changemaker Program

Our goal is to ignite and accelerate the changemaking mindsets and skill sets of students as they go through their high school years and apply to college.

Every week during the program we offer a variety of high-impact, practical, and fun opportunities both online and in person. We’ll help students map out a personalized program that will include the following…

Workshops + Courses

Students will have the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, design thinking, social innovation, leadership and more. Our spring program begins with Greg’s March course in Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Changemaker Speakers + Conversations

Students will learn from and have conversations with leaders from universities and organizations including Columbia, Duke, Northwestern, NYU, the UN Foundation, Airbnb, and Google, amongst others.

Mentors + Coaches

Students will participate in individual and group sessions with business leaders, social sector innovators and university faculty.

Tools + Resources

Students will have weekly and on-demand access to practical tools and resources to help them with school service projects, volunteering and their own individualized changemaking projects.
