“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead

What We Do

As Gandhi's famous quote so eloquently describes - 'be the change you wish to see in the world', change does truly start from within. Whether you want to build a happier life, advance in your career, launch a social project/enterprise or contribute to existing social, environmental or humanitarian projects, if you want to make significant lasting change, then it start with building and developing yourself as a person.

Be The Change Academy is about equipping you with the knowledge, skills, resources and connections to build a better life for yourself, whilst simultaneously enabling you to make a difference in social, humanitarian and environmental projects around the world - as you learn, we're able to channel more funds to worthwhile courses.

We also know that learning, growing, developing and building in our lives isn't easy - everyone does really need all the help they can get. Also, in this fast-paced, technology driven world we need more genuine human connection. The internet brings knowledge, information and connections to our finger tips, but genuine human care and compassion for others literally makes a world of difference. That is why every single person who gets involved in a course will have a personal mentor to support them through the program - to guide you to make the most of it, and help you to follow through to complete the course and apply what you learn.

Our goal, unlike many other online education platforms, isn't to just to sell as many programs as possible to make money, whether people actually complete the course or not. We want to do everything we can to help you complete it and live what you learn because it means that there will be more people in the future that we can collaborate with to create bigger and wider reaching projects, initiatives, campaigns and social businesses to make a meaningful difference!

Who We Are

Be The Change Academy is an initiative of Be The Change Agency - a sister not-for-profit initiative providing offline coaching in the fields of personal development, career progression, social entrepreneurship and consultancy to existing social enterprises and NGOs.

With a wide range of projects and initiatives we passionate about creating change in matters like educating refugee children, providing families and children with access to clean water and climate change. We're a growing community of volunteers and aspiring changemakers all devoted to the introspective work of self-reflection and self-development, fuelled by a passion and enthusiasm to want to create positive change in the world.

You'll find individuals here from all walks of life, all backgrounds, races, religions and ages united by the common desire to realise our potential and striving to leave the world a better place.

Too often people feel like their hands are tied when it comes to be able to make a difference to seemingly colossal issues in far-flung corners of the global. While it's easy to think there is nothing we can do, which is the first hurdle to overcome, what is then essential is having the projects, platforms or networks to be able to make a difference.

That is where we come in - helping you learn what you need to through our online courses, then through our network of partners, projects, campaigns and existing NGOs we can enable you to learn & make a difference in the world directly.
