    A change journey for young aspiring change makers

    Why a change journey?

    The world is changing at a rapid pace. We face difficult decisions at every turn, and uncertainty prevails over where we are heading. We see and feel every day the unintended consequences of decisions made that affect our friends, family, the community that we are a part of, the organisations that we work for, and the environment that we live in. We feel lost, sometimes confused and oftentimes overwhelmed. We are not sure how to change things.

     

    How can you overcome this? How can you learn to make courageous decisions? What is required for you to BE different so you learn to tap into your sources of inspiration, and begin to see and make a new way forward?

     

    Our change journey could help you answer these profound questions. We've called this change journey the Ignite Lab. We want to ignite your inner spark and help launch the real You who is going to change the world.

     

    Change doesn't happen with a one day training program; it doesn't happen just by attending a once-off workshop. Change happens over time. That's why what we propose for you takes place as a journey over a period of weeks and months.

    An overview

    The Ignite Lab is a learning journey aimed at those aged between 21 to 35 years old. It is designed for those who seek to understand the following questions:

     

    Who am I?

     

    What is my place in the world?
     

    How do I bring my ideas into the world?

     

    You will explore your inner source of inspiration, and discover where your highest future possibilities lie. You will learn to craft your emerging future by applying the practical steps required to make that future a reality. Along the way, coaching circles are facilitated so that your learning is immersive and experiential.

     

    You will learn through a mix of hands-on and thought-provoking activities combined with reflective practises.
