When you join the Changemakers’ Lab, you’ll work in community alongside World Pulse members and learn strategic and tactical methods for creating or enhancing your impact initiative or advocacy campaign. At the end of the program, participants will have a robust changemaking strategy, theory of change, and digital action plan to create transformational change in your community and the world.

  • Access mentors for personalized guidance
  • Be eligible for awards and global promotion to media, funders, and international forums

By joining the Changemakers Lab, participants will:
