Ashoka Young Changemakers


Ashoka Young Changemakers (AYC) is a global network of powerful young people who are creating an Everyone A Changemaker world.

Each Ashoka Young Changemaker has launched social initiatives, formed peer-led teams, and created solutions for the good of all while activating others to join in.

Now, they are stepping up to shape a global conversation in redefining what it means to be a young person growing up in today’s world.



Being in a community of young changemakers who are fighting for their own causes really opened up my mind and made me humble. I'm grateful for Ashoka that provides a platform to connect and unite us all.

With Ashoka, I improved the skill of empathy which helped me to connect better with my peers and people of my community. This also helped me to face the challenges and the obstacles I've come across.
