What exactly is the Academy?

The Academy of Agents of Change is a place for young individuals who dream of a better tomorrow for their community. It’s part classroom, part wilderness arena, and part business forum. Participating youth have an opportunity to find their inspiration and channel it through engaging experiences and discovery. The result is a solidified personal vision and executable plan for what each can do to nurture a sustainable, thriving future for the Galapagos Islands.
Using our unique MIND-SHIFT-IMPACT model, the Academy is part of Lonesome George & Co.’s approach to creating positive social change. The program itself consists of 6 modules combining Outward Bound’s Experiential Learning methodology and Ashoka’s Youth Venture Social Entrepreneurial development techniques.
