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?



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 online 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 our online discussion forum and Zoom calls. Once you decide on a project idea, you'll get matched with a mentor who has expertise in that area and will support you as you implement your project.


Each spring, teams submit their final projects. Projects are evaluated by a team of judges, and finalists are selected. If your team is selected as a finalist, you'll be invited to pitch your idea to our community of philanthropists at Global Pitch to win the funding you need to carry your project forward!

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.

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. You'll need a team of 2-5 students (including you!) and a team advisor (teacher, parent, or other supportive adult).

We can't wait to see you in the program and help you to #bethechange you wish to see!
