Using the power of philanthropy, technology and a global network of mentors and partners, we helped galvanize opportunities and funding to support the next generation of social innovators learning the skills they need to find real-world solutions to local and global challenges.
We built the first crowdfunding platform dedicated to global youth education through project-based service-learning aligned with the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) reaching a network of over 400,000 teachers and 20M teens in over 70 countries. Our Problem-Solution-Impact-Story Model has been adopted by thousands of young people making a difference in their communities.
Launched in 2013, our early programming pilot impacted over 50,000 young people helping them to become engaged global citizens. As well, young people experienced real-world learning by developing skills they’ll need for future economic opportunities and successful employment. In the process of conducting projects, students learned the soft skills of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, empathy, and kindness–seeding the field of social innovation in education and beyond.
