Our 10-year programme designed to change the lives of 100 unemployed 18-24 year olds
Starting April 2021, we will seek to recruit 10 young unemployed people each month. They will be our ‘Thinking for Good’ Ambassadors.
Imagine the impact of 100 empowered people giving rise to Light Bulb Moments that alter the lives of at least 10,000 people and are the stimulus for something greater – something much better.
Join us in our journey to start a chain reaction that generates sizeable humanitarian and business benefits. The ripple effect has the power to dramatically impact the world for those involved and we would love you to partner with us to change the destiny of many lives.
About the changemaker programme
Mastering Go M.A.D.® Thinking skills
Coaching and group development activities to build confidence and practical skills
The 100 ‘Thinking for Good’ ambassadors will follow a structured, exciting virtual induction programme led by our internal experts. During their induction we will train them in the Go M.A.D.® Thinking methodology.
By the end of their induction, the ambassadors will have the skills and tools to coach and facilitate Light Bulb Moments for themselves and others.
Helping 100 people in 100 days
A series of practical challenges to apply learning and develop their ability to be a Changemaker
Each ‘Thinking for Good’ ambassador will be challenged to create and document Light Bulb Moments for 100 different people over 100 days. This will develop self-esteem and a sense of personal achievement, whilst making a difference to 10,000 lives.
They will capture their journey of creating Light Bulb Moments and record video stories. These will be shared publicly on social media to inform, inspire and teach others incorporated within a series of documentary film projects.
Work experience & skills development
Developing future leaders to be the most employable we can help them to be
Our ‘Thinking for Good’ ambassadors will complete a 6-month placement with a team in our business to add value with their ideas, possibility thinking and enthusiasm. We will provide ongoing coaching and opportunities to develop their skills in communication, problem solving, teamwork and coaching.
Building a great support system
Involving other experts to support, mentor and increase probability of success
‘Thinking for Good’ ambassadors will be introduced, via our global network, to a wide-range of project partners who will provide learning, inspiration and mentoring support. A programme manager and team of 5 project managers will ensure each ambassador builds a powerful personal support network over 6 months.
An internal buddy system will enable the ambassadors to engage with and empower each other whilst continuously developing their teamwork and coaching skills.
Supporting their next 10 years
Launching ‘Thinking for Good’ ambassadors into their future
The Go M.A.D.® Thinking methodology stays with people throughout their lives, we are confident that the ambassadors will enlist these principles to reach their goals and overcome challenges long after they have left us. For the next 10 years we will support them with coaching and will be available to them for mentoring as well as guidance. They will always have free access to our resources.
Together, we can be the catalyst to change their lives and the lives of many others.
