Changemaker Program

Everybody can be a changemaker!

The Changemaker Program supports changemaking activities of young talent to move the world to ensure a better future for children’s rights! The program is for everyone between 12 and 24 years that want to contribute to a lasting change for children’s rights in their communities and beyond.

The Changemaker Program consists of three stages:

  1. The first stage of the program is called the Action Developer.
    Changemakers will be receiving one-on-one support throughout all stages of a changemaking project, from writing the project plan to evaluating the project, and from talent development to the use of templates and tools. KidsRights wants to empower young people, new to changemaking or already active changemakers, to develop their talents and skills, connect and inspire them with other changemakers and amplify their message by sharing their activities globally.
  2. The second stage of the program is called the Fund Catcher.
    Changemakers that successfully complete the stage of the Action Developer will get the chance to apply for a small fund in support of their changemaking project. Through continued one-on-one support and extra financial support KidsRights wants to support changemakers in upscaling the impact of their activities.
  3. The third stage of the program is called Dreaming Big.
    Changemakers that successfully complete the stages of Action Developer and Fund Catcher and have the ambition to start a youth organization or want to develop their youth organization will get the opportunity to apply for a fund for the development of youth organizations.
