What is the Changemakers program?
The Changemakers program is a 6-month long program that helps youth in Kenya, Peru and Switzerland develop the skills and networks they need to lead sustainable projects to improve their communities.
How much does it cost?
The program is completely free of charge apart from the time you invest in building your skills.
Do I need to have a computer?
Ideally yes, but we understand that access to resources like computers, smartphones, wifi and data can be limited. If you have a great project idea to help your community, apply anyway, and let us know about any resources you may need to be able to have connectivity.
We can find a solution together!
Can I apply if I don’t speak English?
We require a moderate level of English, so that you are able to connect with your peers from other countries and take advantage of the community aspect of the program. Having said that, all educational materials and mentoring can be provided in Spanish if needed.
How are the applicants selected?
The potential Changemakers moving on to the bootcamp stage will be selected based on the potential of their project ideas, as well as their character and motivation. We will choose participants who we believe will most benefit from a personalized mentoring program like Changemakers.
When will those admitted to the bootcamp be announced?
After the application period closes on April 30th, you will hear back from the Changemakers team via email between the 1st and 5th of May if you will move on to the bootcamp stage. You will be contacted, regardless of whether you’ve been selected to join the bootcamp stage or not.
After the bootcamp stage, the final group of 30 Changemakers will be announced on the 9th of June, 2023.
