We train young changemakers in skills related to project management, design thinking, social impact and social change. The people we hav,e trained and the incredible projects they have developed have impacted over 15,1 million people worldwide.
Now YOU can unlock the power and potential of young people to impact YOUR community through organising and hosting a GCMx event!
GCMx events are created in the spirit of our mission to support youth to create positive change and are organised by passionate people who believe that young people have the power to make a difference.
YOU can unlock that power and give people the skills, knowledge and tools they need to take action on some of the most pressing challenges of our time. By becoming a GCMx host you will organise and run an impactful and engaging event based on our training methodology, with supporting materials and mentorship from the Global Changemakers team.
GCMx can also be hosted online! Using Zoom, we've adapted the format of GCMx to a shorter online interactive event, to reach more young people across the world.
