At The Changemaker Project, we believe in education as a vehicle for social change. That's why we've created a global design challenge for young people who want to change the world.

How does the program work?

We offer a comprehensive curriculum for teachers which covers social justice issues affecting people, animals, and the environment, as well as Stanford's Design Thinking process. Teachers utilize our curriculum to prepare their students for our global design challenge, where students compete to create innovative solutions to social problems.

Teachers of any discipline can implement The Changemaker Project Curriculum in their classroom, or as part of an after school club. It was developed to address a broad range of standards in the Common Core as well as IB standards. It was also designed to be engaging to students with a variety of learning styles, and flexible enough to meet the needs of any teacher.

The course begins by introducing students to a variety of real-world issues that face our planet (affecting people, animals, and the environment). Students then break into teams and decide on a problem to tackle. The rest of the course provides valuable problem-solving skills and guides teams through Stanford's Design Thinking process to create an innovative project.

In May, teams submit their final projects. Projects are evaluated by a team of judges, and finalists are selected. Finalist teams are invited to pitch their idea to venture capitalists and philanthropists at Global Pitch to win funding for their project!
