Today we are facing many issues in the world: racism, climate change, failing education systems. Over time there has been one group of people who have taken on the status quo and shifted these big issues: Young people. Young people are our risk takers and big thinkers. They are the courageous better halves of society, yet are often overlooked and not given the opportunities they seek out. Changeist mobilizes young people (ages 11-26) from all different walks of life, places them on diverse teams and takes them through a 6-month civic action experience, exploring the issues they care most about.
