Our Events

Our events have been ideated in collaboration with leading individuals and teams like Uber. They are designed to help bridge the gap between formal education and real life success through:

1) Unexpected stories from leaders, innovators, artists, activists, entrepreneurs and everything in between. Speaking about some of their biggest lessons and decisions in life from a young age.

2) Workshopping skills that make us uniquely human in a practical way. The workshops are delivered by young people who are passionate about what we do!

3) Fostering meaningful relationships between students and our storytellers. 

4) Showcasing incredible local venues and food vendors. Ensuring that dynamic experiences stimulate community building.

5) Post-event mentoring sessions allow the learning to extend beyond individual workshops. While also personalising the content to suit individual circumstances.

6) Promoting conscious learning by ensuring paid workshops carry a social impact.

“IF YOU GET THE ENVIRONMENT RIGHT, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US HAS THE CAPACITY TO DO REMARKABLE THINGS "

Simon Sinek

Integrity, honesty, transparency and compassion are the values we believe should drive future generations so that every young person has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

We want to foster a community of young people who care about the world around us, and want to make a difference. We envision this collective of youth around the world being a catalyst in solving some of the worlds biggest issues, but we need the biggest and most diverse community of passionate people to do so. Whether you're a young person passionate about making a difference, whether you simply want to be part of a great community, or you want to pay it forward by helping future generations thrive in life, we would love to hear from you. 

"If you can change a classroom, you can change a community, and if you change enough communities you can change the world."
