With a global pandemic spreading, stark racial and socioeconomic inequalities mounting, and climate change continuing to wreak havoc; the institutions that govern our world are failing to solve these pressing problems.
Moments of upheaval and disruption provide opportunities to enact change, and we need young women to lead this change.
The time is now; the world needs you.
Shape this changing world with us
Miss Porter’s ChangeMaker’s Institute brings passionate, driven young women (15-18 years old ) from around the world. Through an engaging and challenging Fellowship experience, talented young women will work together to identify a shared vision for a better future.
Throughout 12 weeks, Fellows will explore their own lives and belief systems. They will work to connect with global experts and each other to gain clarity on how to make the ideal future they envision a reality.
Throughout the semester, twenty Fellows will work to tackle their shared goals by learning to reframe and reimagine the issues they are passionate about and determine the key priority levers that will enact lasting change. At the culmination of their time together, Fellows will create an implementable blueprint for change and will have the opportunity to pitch the plan to peers, family members, alumnae (Ancients), and invited guests.
