Games, curriculum & social impact competitions to fuel 21st century learning.
What We Do:
Our curriculum and platform connect young changemakers ages 13-24 with training in key 21st century skills and the support networks they need to build powerful social impact careers.
Our flagship project is a mobile platform for running social impact competitions. Our app coaches teens and young adults in design thinking and technical skill-building as they take on major world challenges.
We’re reimagining high school for the 21st century with a focus on social entrepreneurship and technical skill building.
Open Education Toolkits & Professional Development
We create open education toolkits, infographics and other resources to help teachers bring design and social entrepreneurship into their classrooms.
Youth Civic Hackathons
We ran San Francisco’s first youth civic hackathon and love helping organizations bring this fun and engaging activity to students.
The ChangeX Education team have traveled the world building innovative programs from Silicon Valley to Lebanon. How can we help you prepare your students for 21st century success?
I was able to meet many fellow youth all sharing the passion to create new things. In the process, I learned that technology and communication go hand-in-hand. Finally, I was able to improve my hand at laser cutting and 3D modeling, things that I’ve never pictured myself doing.Youth Civic Hackathon participant, January 2015

“With well-designed pedagogy, we can empower kids with critical skills and help them turn passions into decisive life advantages. The role of education is no longer to teach content, but to help our children learn—in a world that rewards the innovative and punishes the formulaic…Now, adults need to be able to ask great questions, critically analyze information, form independent opinions, collaborate, and communicate effectively. These are the skills essential for both career and citizenship.” Tony Wagner
