Global Changemaker Schools

Complete this quick and easy form to nominate a Changemaker School today!


Ashoka strives to make empathy, teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving (what we call changemaker skills) as valued in education as traditional academic skills so that all students find their voices and can make a positive impact on the world. 

In order to achieve this goal, we created the Changemaker Schools Network, a global community of leading schools that serve as models for cultivating these skills in students. Schools in the network share best practices with each other and benefit from opportunities to collaborate with other schools, connect with Ashoka's partners, present at conferences, and more.
