An intense one year program to learn the tools of a changemaker (such as Design Sprint, Facilitation Skills, and many others). Our main focus at The Changemaker's Toolbox is to develop your skillset; to experiment with tools and methods for changemaking out in the real world. To do this we launch a number of particpant-run projects, addressing relevant real world issues together with real stakeholders.

The course consists of:

Making Impact (MI)

The more advanced program has a slightly different format. The majority of the year will be centered around a major project of your own. This will give you the means to completely immerse yourself in an issue and a solution of your choice, with school staff supporting you every step of the way.

When you apply to MAKING IMPACT you might already have some previous experience as an activist or running NGOs or businesses.

We focus on the following topics:

  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Design sprint
  • Networks & ecosystems
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Project management
  • Presentation & pitching
  • Marketing & branding
  • and much more.
