The Young Changemaker Incubator - YCI

Don’t do it because you have to,
Do it because you need to

SDG Education is now one of the most urgently needed elements of secondary school learning. Everything taught at school level in the 21st century can, and should, be seen through a sustainability lens. Unfortunately, school curriculums take a long time to update, and the SDGs do not feature.

If you are just starting out on your sustainability/SDG learning, or if you want to contribute to initiatives but are not ready to start your own, then the YCI Member programme is for you. You will get access to exclusive learning and team experiences and opportunities to kickstart your journey.

In the YCI Founder option, ITS helps you realize your own potential through projects that are all uniquely developed around your own interests and passions. By identifying a clear need linked to the UN sustainable development goals about which you feel strongly, the YCI Founder mentorship, based on proven systems-change-theory, allows you to determine an approach which will be your contribution to achieving the SDGs by 2030. All projects get recognition from the United Nations.

The YCI Executive is for students who have either completed the YAAPP or the YCI Founder or have already founded an initiative independently and have it running but wish to access mentoring to enhance and develop what it does. Our mentors help you feel out your next steps and again help you register with the UN.

Most importantly, young changemakers get the real-world experiences of start-ups, leadership, problem-solving, social entrepreneurship - both the successes and the failures - which are crucial to the learning process and development of modern global citizens.

If you want to..

  • become a real global citizen
  • make a positive impact in this world
  • transcend the joyless box-ticking of extracurricular activities
  • cultivate your own initiative, foundation, or community
  • apply yourself before university or a first job

...then the Young Changemaker Incubator is the right platform for you!
