Jelajah Impact Changemaker Edition consists of important modules which include Pentas Nyala and Takeover. The description of the modules are as follows:

Pentas Nyala
(1 hour)
To get the participants to listen to the aspiration and journey of someone who has volunteered and been a part of the social change within an organisation.
(1 hour)
To get the participants to understand and plan their volunteering journey, from understanding their purpose to identifying the communities and their respective skills in the efforts they can do

Akademi Impact Changemaker Edition 

Akademi Impact, the follow-up initiative to Jelajah Impact, is set to bring together 50 enthusiastic young individuals for an intensive, immersive volunteering experience lasting over six weeks, spanning from November to December. In collaboration with ten NGOs and social enterprises, Akademi participants will spearhead specific projects, ultimately transforming into proactive changemakers. 

This year, the Akademi Impact Changemaker Edition has honed its focus on addressing pressing issues such as poverty, healthcare, indigenous rights, biodiversity, climate change, and education, among others. The program comprises two integral components: 

  • In-Depth Exploration of a Socio-economic Issue and Interactive Sessions with Local NGOs: Participants will dedicate an hour to delve deeply into a chosen socio-economic challenge, followed by engaging discussions with local NGOs.
  • Introduction to Impact Model Canvas (IMC) and Practical Project Ideation: In a 1.5-hour session, participants will receive a concise overview of the Impact Model Canvas (IMC) and put it into practice to generate innovative project ideas.

Moreover, all participants will receive transportation stipends to facilitate their involvement, while partner NGOs and social enterprises will secure partial funding to support the youth-led projects. This dynamic program promises to empower young leaders and drive tangible change in critical societal areas.
