From March for Our Lives to the Global Climate Strike, young changemakers are leading some of today's biggest social movements in the United States. These young changemakers exemplify the idea that young people do not need permission to change their world.
The majority of Ashoka’s leading social entrepreneurs, also known as Ashoka Fellows, had their first changemaking experience before age 20. As we explore the Fellows’ changemaking journies, we begin to see why the importance of supporting young changemaking -- indeed, the mantra LeadYoung -- serves as the guiding principle for changing the way young people grow up.
Ashoka is a team of people working together to advance a world in which everyone is a changemaker. Our relentless, committed, and global team is also a community of changemakers, each with our own ever-evolving changemaking journey.
