Today more than ever we all face a world of constant change. Advances in technology are lowering the barriers to participation and action, enabling more of us to access information and contribute fully in every aspect of society by being a changemaker, and gaining the power to solve the most pressing issues the world is facing.
Rather than just passing the time, what if young people — and families — took the chance to talk about social issues and what we can do to solve them? As a parent or guardian, you can help raise a child to become a changemaker with the skills to succeed in a world of constant change and adaptation!
We asked parents of young changemakers — students who are already making a difference in their communities — to share their advice for helping young people discover their power to make change.
