BOOST!

LOCAL

YOUTH

I hear you asking – “What about my LOCAL YOUTH”?

and YES – it’s part of our plan. It’s all interconnected

I love to see you on this page.

With your knowledge of boosting hero/ines + tools + tricks + support, let’s confidently zoom into your local youth and face2face environment.

Empowering local youth is common sense : 

1. Spread the message

If you are a talkative type,

2. inspire youth face2face

3. Support inspired youth, also in-kind

This page relates to your own experience, with local schools, youth, spaces, friends, allies… this means we ask you to think, it gets “personal”.

Shake yaself out a bit! Get a bite to freshen up!

TIME is not at issue

Like Lulu does with PhilanthroParties, we weave it into what you’re doing anyway.

1. Spread the message

If you are a talkative type

2. inspire youth face2face

3. Support inspired youth, also in-kind

SEED QUALITY MEDIA

SPREAD THE SPIRIT through books & teaching tools

It begins with inspiration.

First of all, youth – and their allies – have to become fully aware of the powers of youth leadership … to a point that they want to follow our news, get involved and launch initiatives in their own region.

Seed to Youth Spaces

that’s schools. And schools. And schools. Then, public libraries, after school clubs, community centres, public space, youth NGOs, magazines, radio and television, concerts, town fests

Reminder : Scale up! lists tools and tactics to reach the citizenry, adults who also connect with youth, as kids, customers, students, audience.

we have tools and more for you

BOOST! Face 2 Face

through Conversations, Presentations, Stands, Workshops …

Casual, for Everybody

Do not ignore young people. Don’t fear them. Don’t be shy. Speak to them.

Hand a Flyer

This takes 5 seconds. guide their attentions to books, the Boost! Club, global issues, ask for causes they care about, inform that you offer to go give a presentation, and that there are awesome leadership programs in collab with the hero/ines.

Add Visuals

Posters on a laundry line, a market stand, is all you need. 

School Fests

As a parent – set up an exhibit, raise funds, add inter/action, like flip-posters, survey, interview youth, parents, teachers. TEAM UP! 

Add interaction

A stand. Fundraise.

Attend a Youth Event

If you score one caring youth, on fire to have a presentation at their school, get involved in fundraising, even form a club, that’s gold. Plenty. 1 person.

Philanthro-Party

for a hero/ine, and get youth to visit your stand, the event, and learn more.

Give space to hearing their voices, concerns, interests, passions, skills, experiences, goals, ideas. TEAM UP!

Formal, for Messengers

We have Training & Tools for you.

Presentation Pack

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings.

The goal is to spark a team, a student club, using the resources of our Change Generation Rising CGR training program with 400+ actions by 100+ hero/ines.

Poster Exhibit

24 teen hero/ines. You’ll be using posters as part of the presentation, and the idea is for youth (when you are gone) to have this tool to create

  • long-term presence
  • reach all students
  • have a “stage”, a space
  • to evolve with stands
  • into the club HQ

Wall Display

aka YOUTH-LEADER magazine.

  • with current progress news
  • from unfolding adventures
  • current UN Action Days
  • new music, books, heros
  • campaigns, petitions, events
  • impact by teams
  • “live2 dates and meetings

in artistic format, big photos, short texts, QR codes to more

Workshop Pack

The teams are likely to want to know more, and you being their first and trusted contact (ta-taa), they’ll look at you for guidance. Already, you’ve given them the lead to CGR for self-organization. But it’s great to stay in touch as a sworn team. This pack is a fabulous resource to “go pro”. They can use it by themselves, but it’s always cool to have a good adult with them.

We have Training for You

For Messengers, it is compulsory. Makes sense, right? It teaches you the essentials of youth leadership, badass hero/ines, favorite causes for everybody, our tools, rocking videos and music, makes you reflect, check on current news of your own favorite hero/ines, think, feel, dig in, be part … thereby giving you your own passionate stories to share with youth, making your presentations deeper, fresher, funnier, more fluent, freestyling with your own anecdotes … making you a good authentic Volunteer Messenger.

To inspire = knowledge transfer and spirit transfer

To “transfer” spirit, to make it resonate in others, it is necessary that you have that spirit in you, that you feel it, that spirit of youth leadership, tangibly changing lives, laws, industries, life at school,

… which kindles hope, confidence, courage in others and gives a safe, trusted space for articulating one’s heart – virtuous feelings, fears, out/rage, love, bold vision.”

The Tutorial / Crash Course immersion definitely kindles that in caring people.

Never too old. Never too teacher. Never too serious.

HE’s got it, the passion, the magic. It’s serious. It’s about securing the future of the world we love. It’s about youth warrior power. It’s urgent. It’s happening right now. They hear him.

The Tutorial

Upgrade Your Worldview on Youth

If you act locally, and meet people, this is vital.

Your memories about your time and experience with youth, school, adult relations, administration, the power of one influence your effect on others.

Scepticism kills, optimism wins. You need to be realistic, and this means : optimistic; because it works.

Erase all Doubt

about the powers of (local) youth who have not yet found and unfolded their passion and powers like their hero/ine peers.

 

Learn about Youth Leadership

  • the million facets it can take in your community
  • how it starts and evolves at schools
  • the role of media
  • the role of adults

Immerse yourself

“Take a bath” in the spirit of youth leadership, and learn to feel like hero/ines.

That is the way of the master.

We make it easy. The tutorial is exciting, and teaches you a lot about what goes on in the minds of your audience, teachers etc.

Reminder: Youth are BOSS

Never ever employ / ab-use youth for your goals.

It is Youth Leadership

They have to do it, long-term, stand in the spotlight, face bullies, parents, “grades”. They are in for the long run, for early and late hours.

Adults, you are busy, you’re not in for the grindy, nor the shiny work. So, don’t push them, ever. What you believe needs doing – do it yourself. Please.

They have intuition and guardian angels. They know how to pick their challenges, their risks, stuff you’d never dare doing. Hence :

Sit together, hear what they need, SERVE, asking:

“What do you need?”

Then, listen with attention, without judgement, reflect, see how you can help. Observe things unfold.

That’s the way <3

The same is true for teens mentoring kids.

It’s a role that YL Warriors quickly glide into.
“And it’s super fulfilling.” Lulu, LemonAID Warriors

REMINDER – Always include GLOBAL

also when you’ve found your passion for your local hero/ines and causes

Our Global Hero/ines are #1

Why? They already make vast impact, and they are our strongest asset for boosting local newbies with

  • inspiration and how-to
  • missions, instant action opportunity
  • stories, videos, tools
  • structure, local chapters
  • “live” meetings
  • coaching, mentoring

Never Give Up the Global Focus and Support.

Don’t get lost in the small local box. It can close down, suffocate and lose momentum quicker than you think.

Hence, with us

  1. start global
  2. add local
  3. mesh global and local
