HOW DO WE PREPARE OUR CHILDREN TO THRIVE IN A WORLD WHERE THE MAJORITY OF TOMORROW'S JOBS DON’T EXIST TODAY?
HOW DO WE CREATE AUTHENTIC COMMUNITIES WHERE PARENTS SUPPORT EACH OTHER IN THE JOURNEY OF PARENTING?
HOW DO WE CREATE EVOLVED PARENTING PRACTICES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Changemaking starts with you, the parent
At Ashoka's Youth Venture, we believe changemakers are not born. Instead they are shaped by their experiences and most importantly, their influencers. Parents, as the most critical influence in a child's life, can best enable children to master changemaking. 
 
Parenting Changemakers is a parent-led initiative aimed at creating ideas, tools, and practices to support children to be changemakers and, in the process evolve parenting practices of the 21st century.

    WHO? WHAT? WHY?
     
    Parenting Changemakers is targeted towards parents of children ages 4 -16. There is plenty of support for parents of infants and toddlers. However, there is a significant gap in the resources available to parents of 4 - 16 year olds, especially when it comes to changemakingAs a scaffold is built to support workmen during construction, this program will provide the framework and support for parents, who are doing the most important job in the world.

    How It Works
    Through research and interactions with leading business and social entrepreneurs and their parents, Youth Venture has learned the common themes and patterns in parenting that shape a changemaker. This knowledge forms the blueprint for Parenting Changemakers. 
     
    Parents get together in groups - we call them ‘Wisdom Circles’ - to connect and discover ways to meet the challenges of parenting. Through their own stories, and the stories of parents whose children have done extraordinary things for society, parents are inspired to raise their children as changemakers of the future, equipped with skills of empathy, problem-solving, leadership and teamwork.
     
    In these Wisdom Circles:
     
    1. Participants co-create ideas to help their child(ren) master the changemaking skills of empathy, problem solving, leadership and teamwork;
    2. Participants form an authentic community of like-minded parents who support each other around parenting issues;
    3. Participants become part of a larger movement of parents advocating for changemaking opportunities for children in schools, communities, and society.
