Individual Potential is Held Back

We can no longer rely on an education system that hasn’t changed for over 100 years. Education should facilitate creativity over conformity and inspire students to reach their full potential.

Learn-by-doing

Work with changemakers and take ownership over real-world projects to apply your skills, creativity and critical thinking toward having a tangible, positive impact.

Global Progress is Constrained

The education system should empower students to become leaders that balance human and environmental needs, not drive them into a success paradigm focused on personal gain.

Learn Big, Spend Small

Use free resources and leverage our community to help you overcome your biggest barriers. Work with Changemakers in exchange for accommodation, food and/or living stipends.

Cost Reinforces the Status Quo

As the costs of higher education rise, millions of students are trapped in debt and career paths that don’t align with their interests. Education should bridge the inequality gap, not widen it.
