How It Works

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes an ecosystem to raise a changemaker. This ecosystem is created through the collaboration of your community’s institutions—such as schools, companies, and faith organizations—working together to support youth social entrepreneurship.

In our process, we take your community through the Changemaker Journey which is designed to unfold over a nine-month period. Key stakeholders are invited to gather for a series of experiences facilitated by Ashoka staff. These stakeholders include (but are not limited to) teachers, children, policymakers, and business professionals. We encourage these sessions to have a diverse background of stakeholders that represent the unique members of your community.

We partner with influential institutions to co-create innovate ideas that integrate changemaking towards:
