EMPOWERING THE YOUTH OF TODAY FOR THE CHALLENGES OF TOMORROW
A state-of-the-art future leadership after-school program for high-performing students
This transformative educational experience is focused on empowering our youth to solve the problems of tomorrow. Its inquiry-based approach advances critical thinking, collaboration, creative problem solving, and social and environmental awareness.
If we know one thing for sure about the future, it is that the world keeps changing with all the challenges that go with it. Many of the current jobs are going to be taken over by robots and software, and we have to look for ways that humans can still contribute. This is mostly in identifying issues at hand, creative problem solving, making decisions based on critical analyses, and working together with people from multiple backgrounds.
We develop skill sets needed for the jobs of the future.
THRIVE WITH PURPOSE
Our projects contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals
In all our projects, we work towards one or multiple of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals. They are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".
The SDGs were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. They are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.
Above and Beyond
We work with very small groups (6-10 children) on each project, so we have a lot of attention for every individual. We select the children that are interested in order to ensure that they meet the needed skill set in order to fully participate.
Currently, we only offer programs to children in the age range of 8-13 years old, but we will expand our programs shortly. We also expect to start offering bilingual Thai/English projects.

There are simply too many people on the planet to feed if we stick to our current eating habits. During this project, students will learn what changes need to be made. We will do multiple excursions, like visiting an organic farm and doing a vegan cooking workshop. The students will learn what the limitations of our current eating habits are and where new opportunities lie. The project will result in the development of a menu for the food of the future that will contribute to the eradication of poverty (SDG1) and hunger (SDG2) and which contributes to the responsible production and consumption of food (SDG12).
From 3 September - 22 October, each Saturday from 9 AM until 12 PM
22 October: a full day (9-18h)
9,500 THB for the complete program
We LOVE wildlife, what about you? You will learn about the various species of beautiful wildlife in Thailand and why they need to be protected. We will do various field trips: We will visit rescue and rehabilitation center Elephant Nature Park, and we will visit a local market to explore awareness of illegal trade. In our workshop room, we will look for ways on how to use this information to create materials that increase awareness.
You will finish the project by creating a super cool video with your team members on the importance of nurturing and protecting wildlife.
Winter break program: 19-23 December, Mon-Fri 9 AM - 15 PM, Max 10 children.
We are looking for some true innovators for this project. The students will work together with Lanna Café in Chiang Mai. This NGO assists coffee producers of the Thai Hill tribes to grow coffee organically and fair trade.
We will do a full-day excursion to the Hill tribes, where the students will help with coffee picking. They will experience the full production process from bean to cup.
After being inspired, our students will learn about product innovations. Lanna needs their help: apart from coffee and tea, what else can be produced from coffee plants and beans? Shampoo? Skincare products? It is up to our students to find market opportunities. They will formally present their findings to the coffee team of Lanna.
When: 5 November - 17 December, 9 AM- 12 PM
Location: Villa San Pee Seua, Chiang Mai, and in our workshop space in Chiang Phueak.
During this project, our students will work for a hotel in Chiang Mai. They will develop a plan on how to make the hotel more sustainable.
The students will learn about sustainable tourism and the many ways in which a hotel can be sustainable. All these learnings will be punt into practice when the students will have to formulate their advice for Villa San Pee Seua.
The students will present their advice to the management of the hotel in an engaging presentation (for which they will be prepped).
Costs: 6,000 THB for the complete program.
