Voices of Social Change

At a time of political unrest, environmental uncertainty, and lingering inequalities, young social changemakers are leading the way to counter today’s challenges.

Voices of Social Change is a free online short course delivered by eight young social entrepreneurs, which helps participants develop their social venture idea, create an action plan and build a network of social change collaborators.

These inspiring individuals started out with an idea and a desire to make a positive social impact. They are now proven and well-recognized changemakers, enhancing the lives of people across the globe. Throughout the course, they share their knowledge, learnings, best practices, and most significant lessons.
