Your involvement in our program 

How to Change the World is an experiential education program that empowers people, organizations and communities to collaboratively tackle our world’s most important challenges... and achieve lasting impact!

Our Sustainability & Innovation Mentors play a critical role in our programs. At several points throughout every program, we have intense two-hour 'Mentor Sessions' during which Mentors meet with participants.

During each 'Mentor Session,' every participating Mentor meets with a series of small teams to discuss what the teams are working on. 


You will connect with dozens of participants, answer their questions and guide them towards feasible solutions.

Our challenges

We help communities around the world tackle the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Each team of participants is assigned to help make a specific community more sustainable. We frame these challenges using the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Through independent research and interviews with Local Stakeholders, participants learn about the community's unique sustainability challenges. The teams then begin developing implementable solutions for the challenges. 

Mentors help guide participants through our experiential Learning Journey. Sustainability Mentors provide guidance around a broad range of environmental, social and economic issues. Meanwhile, Innovation Mentors help participants hone their ideas into implementable and scalable solutions with positive impact.
