Teens Change the World! 2020 Summer Program

The Teens Change the World! 2020 Summer Program is a week-long service and leadership experience that will give teens the opportunity to volunteer with different nonprofits, learn about a variety of local causes, hear from social impact experts, and even pitch their ideas for a social impact project to business and community leaders.  

Participating teens will:

  • Earn 15 service hours in one week
  • Learn about a variety of community issues, such as poverty, hunger, and the environment
  • Participate in community service projects where they can see what they're learning in action
  • Learn about the role volunteerism plays in making a difference in the community
  • Tap into their personal leadership potential and explore their passion for social change
  • Get hands-on experience designing their own project for social change and receive feedback and guidance from community leaders and professionals
  • Pitch a service project idea for making a difference in the community during a showcase event for the chance to win a small grant for their nonprofit partner to actually execute their project!  

A superhero "bootcamp" of sorts, we hope this Program will be a life-changing experience for our young leaders, helping them realize and act on their potential. 

Thanks to generous donors and sponsors, Activate Good is able to offer a select number of scholarships to students interested in attending this program - a value of $300 with daily lunch, snacks, and light breakfast options included. Know an exceptional student deserving of this opportunity who may not otherwise be able to attend? Talk to them about their interest and have them complete both the teen and parent sections of the online application, including household income information. Your recommendation will supplement any income information shared by the parent/guardian. (Please note: The teen application requests a brief video created by the teen discussing their interests and ideas. Content is more important than footage quality! Videos can be created using a phone or webcam.).
