Turn Your Passion in to Action with ChangeMaker’s Institute


We all have feelings – lots of them – about all the world’s problems. The question is what to do about it? Apply to ChangeMaker’s to develop the skills to turn your passion into action.

Porter’s Center for Global Leadership (PCGL) is excited to introduce you to our ChangeMaker’s Institute. This unique virtual programming, supported by scholarships, offers a series of scaffolded courses that provide high school girls globally with the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skill sets necessary to be effective catalysts for change in their communities and beyond. Girls work toward earning the PCGL ChangeMaker’s Certificate by taking all four courses in the series, including the culminating year-long Fellowship. 

Through three structured courses taken over this 2022-23 academic year, participants learn from experts in the change-making sphere and connect with peers worldwide while building essential skills grounded in:

In the following 2023-24 academic year, participants are actively mentored to put the skill sets and knowledge they acquire into practice in an 8-month Fellowship and earn a Porter’s Center for Global Leadership ChangeMaker’s Certificate.

We are enrolling a new cohort with a deadline of September 10th, 2022. Apply soon because space is limited, and we don’t want you to miss out!
