Changemakers Everywhere Academy
We envision a world where every person is fully able to realize their rights and live in an equitable, inclusive society. Overcoming these issues requires creating new models for good governance, and we believe that social entrepreneurs are the right individuals to build them.
So, what do we mean when we talk about good governance? Good governance is the intentional creation of systems to equitably and effectively meet the needs and ensure the wellbeing of ALL community members.
To strengthen projects and ideas such as these, Ashoka and American Express are partnering to offer the Changemakers Everywhere Academy.
The Changemakers Everywhere Academy is an intensive online learning journey where high-caliber social entrepreneurs creating these better systems for good governance will learn powerful strategies for scaling their social impact and become part of a global community of movement builders.
Participants will benefit from a deep dive into their systems changing strategy, expert guidance in leadership and network activation, and the space to workshop their ideas, as well as becoming part of an international community of like-minded changemakers. Participants will also access unique opportunities for advancement, including the potential to be considered for an Ashoka Fellowship, and access to a global network of over 5,400 Leadership Academy alumni.
The program modules will be hosted through the community platform WeChangers, which will also serve as a collaboration space for participants. Participants will be organized into cohorts based on language, and the program will be offered in English, Spanish, and French. Academy modules will take part in 2-2.5-hour segments, occurring over the course of 6 months.
*Please note, participants must take part in ALL sessions to receive recognition and certification for completing the program and to be considered for the Ashoka Fellowship.
