REDxYouth Activators is an online leadership experience that brings together incredible young leaders from across Australia, and builds on the group’s diverse backgrounds and life experience, to supercharge participants’ skills and confidence to activate change on social and humanitarian issues within their own lives and communities.
Through the program, participants build on their strengths and life experience, applying new mindsets, methods and tools to take action and mobilise others on issues that matter within their own communities – such as mental health, inequality, discrimination, homelessness, migration, climate change and natural disasters.
The program is delivered over a 10-week period and built around a weekly 90-minute facilitated workshop in which the participants are guided through immersive content, introduced to inspiring speakers, and given the space to connect and collaborate with one another. Each workshop is followed up by weekly challenges: self-directed activities designed to prompt practical investigation and deeper reflection on concepts and questions explored in the workshop.
Throughout the experience, participants will be supported by their crews: participants and mentors, meeting weekly to reflect and collaborate on program content and to practically test and apply new thinking together. The program is designed to nurture young Australians, who are creating positive change in their communities and seeking to take their skills and influence to the next level – to inspire and mobilise greater action across their networks.
For those interested in running their own program you can download the open source Activators Blueprint.
