Students for Change - How to get involved
You are CHANGE. Students like you are a part of CHANGE because they are passionate about shaping a society where everyone is welcome, can participate and live together. They believe that all people matter regardless of where they come from, what nationality they are or what they believe. As a young person, you are the future and this is why you care about contributing to a positive change for all of us.
Students involved in CHANGE think critically about issues that matter, first through learning about them in your classroom. During the course, you have also heard the stories of and maybe meet refugees – you have listened to their experience of coming and living in your country as well as their hopes and dreams for the future.
Become a CHANGE Student Ambassador
If you were excited by what you have learned and experienced and want to get more involved in acting for CHANGE, you can become a CHANGE Student Ambassador. Together with other Student Ambassadors, you can generate ideas and plan an action – like an event, a service project or a mini campaign – raise awareness and become an advocate for the CHANGE you want to see in society.
So, you’ve gone through the CHANGE course and now you want to become a Student Ambassador? Do you know other
students who are interested too? If not, get your friends on board by organizing an information session,
posting flyers and spreading the word on social media! Then together, you can commit to organizing two
actions for CHANGE.
Check out how here .
At the end of each year of CHANGE, watch for national events happening in your country to celebrate the accomplishments of change makers like you. Student Ambassador groups that have the best actions for change could win a trip to Brussels in 2021 to share their experiences with others involved in CHANGE and with policymakers at the European Parliament. For a chance to participate, register your CHANGE action here.
Are you new to CHANGE and want to know more? Ask your teacher or another mentor – like a coach or youth group leader – to get in touch with your CHANGE partners here.
Towards the end of each school year, CHANGE will organise events in each country to bring together Student Ambassador groups and others working on behalf of CHANGE. At these events, you will be able to share what you learned, exchange information about the actions you led and find out what’s next for CHANGE.
At the end of the 2021 school year, CHANGE will organise a final European event in Brussels. For the chance to participate, make sure you registered your Student Ambassador actions here. A committee made up of CHANGE experts will review the Student Ambassador actions and those with the most impact – based on criteria like leadership, creativity, and quality – will be invited to the final event. Keep an eye on the CHANGE blog and social media for updates and the event schedule coming soon!
