Hosted by Young Change Agents, this session is for schools wanting to run the Explorer program. 

Explorer is Young Change Agents’ first stage social entrepreneurship program. It is a 2 or 2.5 day “hackathon-style” workshop where teams of students work to identify problems within their communities and then ideate, validate, prototype, and pitch a social enterprise idea to a judging panel. The program can also be delivered as a 1-day “taster” version called Discovery, or a weekly program over a term.

With a focus on social enterprise, young people that go through the Explorer learn the essential skills for creating change in their community whilst also developing their entrepreneurial mindset, skillset, and toolset.
