Changemaker Course

Changemaker Course

The Changemaker course provides young people aged 16-24 years with the opportunity to make a change within your community by working towards.

How does it work?

Groups of up to 20 young people, called Changemakers, will meet over a course of 8-weeks to learn about social enterprises, social value and visit projects and businesses that deliver social action. Using this experience you will then create eco-enterprise activities and products.

The first part of the programme runs for 21 hours. Beyond the first part of the course we would encourage Changemakers to continue their journey by making a difference through environmental projects locally and internationally through our Vibrant Parks, Vibrant Schools or Vibrant Centres projects.

What could this lead to?

The Changemaker Course allows you to develop new skills and make new friends for life. Not only is the experience unique and valuable for your CV, we have had many Changemakers progress and work in many inspirational places. Through our International Vibrant Parks projects some have travelled to New York or Cape Town for the trip of a lifetime. Some have started up their own enterprises through the SSE Start UP Course and many have continued to volunteer in the community in the hundreds of projects people can get involved in.

Where it leads to is up to you. We will give you the skills and knowledge to help you decide, however the choice is yours.
