A worldwide challenge: unleashing the potential of young people
Young people make up the majority of the world’s population and hold the potential to create positive impact on their societies as peer facilitators, advocates, leaders and young professionals. Yet, much of this potential is still to be unleashed. Are you struggling with finding the methods and tools to inspire, engage and boost the confidence of young people for effective empowerment, behaviour change and advocacy programs?
Our solution: connecting with young people in their realities
Our niche expertise lies in empowering young people by connecting with them on their terms and according to their needs. We have learnt that this requires involving young people actively in everything that you do.
Using design thinking and co-creation techniques are great ways for making this happen, which is why these are the guiding principles for all our work. We have gathered learnings from 15 years of delivering, contextualising and translating trainings, workshops and tools. We are now making these offers available to enhance your efforts to engage with and empower young people for positive impact.

“I feel awesome. The training boosted my self-confidence. I couldn’t talk with my colleagues. I couldn’t talk to five people without panicking, but now I can talk in front of thousands people. I changed so much. I love the training and the program. When you take part in this training, you can be rest assured that you are good to go and can deliver perfectly.”
