Made 2 Change the World™ Foundation seeks to equip high school students from underserved communities worldwide with the skills, strategies, and resources they need to create the lives, communities, and world they envision.
Our Three Pillars
Entrepreneurship isn’t just about starting a business.
It’s about alternative ways of thinking—innovative ideas that grow communities. It’s about critical thinking, resilience, decision-making, teamwork, leadership, and contributing to a global community. Entrepreneurship in the 21st-century requires a diverse skillset to cultivate relationships, create jobs, and drive growth in a sustainable and inclusive manner—yet, many young people are not exposed to or taught the skills they need to be able to successfully open, sustain, and scale a business. This unfamiliarity has created “a global opportunity gap”—one that can be narrowed through the creation of an international entrepreneurial coalition that inspires, educates, and mentors youth along their entrepreurial journey.
Made 2 Change the World™ Foundation seeks to create that coalition through a network of strategic alliances and partnerships; the creation and implementation of a robust online platform; and, ultimately, the launch of in-person Youth Centers, first nationally, then internationally.
Our five-tiered implementation strategy is to:
1. Develop and launch a robust online learning platform, utilizing an existing infrastructure service such as Kajabi.
2. Launch the first physical Youth Center in Nashville, Tennessee (COVID-permitting).
3. Replicate the Youth Center model and programming in other cities, including Compton, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans, New York City, and Washington D.C.
4. Roll out across the U.S
5. Spread throughout the world.
