AAC MIAMI – Palmer Trinity School Class of 2015


We are proud to announce our first ever Academy of Agents of Change Program in North America! 12 students hailing from Palmer Trinity School in Miami, Florida make up our newest crop of young leaders ready to get “outfitted” to make a difference in the community. We’re so excited to welcome them and are honored to support them through their personal journey and quest for positive social impact!

As with our original Galapagos program, The Academy U.S. is designed to uncover the potential of young social entrepreneurs while enabling them to experience personal vision as they become Agents of Change.

Combining Outward Bound and Ashoka’s Youth Venture methodologies, we provide scenarios where young individuals develop leadership, personal tools, communication, empathy, and personal development skills. Ultimately, our participants channel their passion into generating important social initiatives that will drive solutions for their communities from the ground up.
