Changemaker Careers

The world needs money. The world also needs Changemakers. And yes, they can and must coexist. The goal of Changemaker Teens is NOT to build an army of volunteers. Yes, we will start as volunteers because you’re still formulating your life directions and career paths. But our ultimate goal is to transform our army of teen volunteers into an army of dedicated, focused adults who not only know what they want, but also how to get it and get paid well in the process. We want our Changemaker Teens to grow into Changemaker Adults. People who are satisfied with their careers and the contributions they are making to society and to the world. We want future generations to be mentally stable and healthy and full of ideas and solutions to right the wrongs that they see in their daily lives.
