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.
