YOU WISH TO SEE
Join changemakers all over the globe in a design challenge to create a better world! Learn about social justice issues, gain tools and skills to solve them, and be part of a community of changemakers across the globe. We'll teach you everything you need to know to tackle big problems with innovation and creativity. Are you ready to be the change you wish to see?
Every Wednesday, from Oct.-May, we host a live course (offered at 9am and 4pm PST—you choose which works best for you) with changemakers around the globe. You'll be part of a pod of learners with a mentor to guide you in your change-making journey, and you'll also get to interact with folks in other pods.
First, you'll learn about real-world issues that face our planet (affecting people, animals, and the environment). Next, you'll decide on a problem to tackle with your team. Our course provides valuable problem-solving skills and guides you through Stanford's Design Thinking process to create a project that solves a real world problem.
Throughout the course, you will have the chance to connect and share ideas with students from all over the world, through both the weekly live calls and the online forum. Once you decide on a project idea, you'll create a short video to share at Global Pitch, where you'll have a chance to pitch your idea to win funding.
In May, teams submit their finished projects for a chance to be featured in the Changemaker Showcase—an opportunity to be honored for your innovation, hard work, and the meaningful impact you've made on the world.
Bring tcp to your school
Would you like to bring The Changemaker Project to your school? There are two options:
1) Tell your favorite teacher or admin about our program-- send them this page. The Changemaker Project can be implemented as part of a class or as an after-school club.
2) Check out our Campus Ambassador Program to learn about our new pilot program of student-led TCP clubs.
You can also participate in The Changemaker Project on your own! We offer a live course every Wednesday at 9am and 4pm PST (to accommodate students in different time zones) where you'll have a chance to meet and work with students from around the world.
Click here to sign up to participate as an independent student (be sure to enter your own email when you check out, as that's where we'll send the course information). The cost is $100 for the year-long program. If you need a scholarship, please send us an email letting us know what your financial need is and what you're able to pay. We don't want cost to be a barrier for any student to participate. Also let us know what school you attend, in case we already have a program at your school.
We can't wait to see you in the program and help you to #bethechange you wish to see!
