CHANGE ARCHITECTS
OVERVIEW

AllGrow  believes that in order to grow, we need to collaborate, and in doing so we are stronger and can design solutions to systemic problems. 

 

Change Architects is an AllGrow initiative aiming to create a space where students become the architects of their own future. Our approach combines design thinking and social entrepreneurship. Change Architects develops 21st century skills and even more importantly the students gain self confidence and the courage to create change. 

Our initiative is unique because it creates a change ecosystem formed by teachers, mentors and students who come together to design and grow social innovations with the goal to create bottom up systemic change.

 
METHODOLOGY

For the first-time students experience how they can be change agents in their communities by developing a community project using the Design Thinking method facilitated by their teacher

During a second iteration the students receive the support of a mentor who guides the student to develop even further their community initiative.

At the third level/iteration the students groups will identify and collaborate with other students and organizations with the goal to scale and increase the impact of their community project.

IMPACT

I learned that some people even if they don't know you, will appreciate your work when others will not, but this helps because all opinions matter you just need to know how to handle them.

Change Architects gave me the opportunity to help my student discover that they have the power to inspire change, find creative solutions to challenges they face and prove to themselves that nothing is impossible. The most important lesson was that even if this was not a compulsory activity, they participated and by doing so, they realized that they have a role to play in their own communities.

I am really happy that I had the chance to learn from my students group (Salvatorii apei). They have an incredible energy and are determined to change the world. I am delighted that I was able to guide and support them in their mission to put their ideas into actions. I encourage them to complete all the projects they started and will start in their life journey.

I felt that we can create change when we work together as a team!

         Elevii din clasa a VI a H au devenit „profesori” pentru colegii lor. O data cu trecerea in clasa a VI a, copiii si-au dat seama ca lectiile invatate la scoala sunt mai dificile, ca apar materii noi, ca pot avea dificultati in intelegerea unor lectii. Astfel, pentru a intelege mai bine unele teme, ei pot apela la colegii lor.

       Atelierele s-au desfasurat pentru mai multe materii in functie de interesul manifestat de copii, fiind abordate stiinte diferite care sun...
