Youth Venture inspires and invests in teams of young people who design and launch their own lasting social ventures. Youth Venture provides youth with the tools and space to take the initiative in creating positive change within their communities. In enabling this transformative experience for thousands of young people, Youth Venture is building a critical mass of young changemakers who are changing the world by redefining the youth years as a time of initiative and community leadership. As more and more Venturers start social ventures in their communities, it will become the norm for young people to create positive social change. Once youth leadership becomes the norm, then society ? young people and adults alike ? will come to expect young people to be competent leaders of social change. In the future, the proportion of the population who are changemakers will jump dramatically, ultimately leading to our vision of ?everyone a changemaker.?
