Warriors combine the best media and methods known around the globe. They are simple and create win-win benefits for activists, students and educators; as has been proven in 10,000 schools.

YL-Learning-BabarAliWarriors manage a Mini-Exhibit in class, featuring “Hero/ines of the Month”, aligned with UN Days. This alternating exhibit keeps things interesting, ever-changing, sustains year-round inspiration, curiosity and influences all students and teachers, daily, no matter how attracted they feel to positive change. It gives opportunity to students and teachers to

  • learn on the go
  • follow their curiosity, discuss favorites
  • share ideas and decide on actions
  • offer presentations on occasion of UN Days
  • include our stories and media in units

NOTE that the poster shows a strong visual, flashlight story and QR Codes for instant viewing of videos on smartphones and visiting the multimedia online profile. Each month, we use 10-20 posters. This makes a powerful exhibit, with many action opportunities. It can be used in many settings; at schools, office corridors, in public space and at events. Play these potentials to the fullest.

Warriors and YL Teams manage a bigger “Hero/ines of the Month” Exhibit in a well visible, pleasant public space in school, with

  • large posters, preferably in color
  • petitions and campaigns
  • on-going lifestyle challenges and social experiments
  • interviews and questionnaires
  • action opportunities
  • + laptops for viewing videos
  • + internet for instant contribution to online campaigns
  • and for “live” conversations with changemakers

Compare this with a student club’s conventional table stand or being hidden away in Room 2.36 on a wednesday afternoon! It’s epic! It is so empowering for student club members! Does it take a lot of resources? No! See how Eric sat one up using simple black and white carbon copies taped to a wall. Eric-YL-PopUp-Exhibit-4-FFCH-Festival-Berlin-May2015-Photo-GraceMegumiOkamoto You can do that! You can easily do better than that! You work is pedagogically valuable, posters ave long-term value… there is no doubt that you can get free copies printed at your school or a few funds to get pretty ones printed at a printer shop. And there’s always the option of ordering professionally printed Poster Sets from us. A Warrior’s basic early step is to connect with us for mobilizing resources for such a Poster Set and Starter Sets for classes. It’s usually quite easy to find a local donor or sponsor. Get connected! This Space is

  • ever-changing, alternating
  • colorful and multi-faceted
  • vibrant and inspirational

which makes it

  • attractive
  • eye-catching

for the entire school community, including teachers. It is a powerful asset for amplifying a student club’s presence for

  • involving students
  • starting conversations
  • uniting changemakers across topics, classes and grades

This vibrant space is also a great add-on to events, farmers markets (use ropes and laundry pins for the display); the EXHIBIT is lightyears better than any stand. THIS is the best example how the exhibti serves to create a “STAGE” that magnetically attracts attention of several user and partner groups.

  1. Parents will love exploring the colourful inspirational role model posters with their kids
  2. Teens will enjoy watching the coolest videos
  3. Informed citizens will enjoy to browse your quality information
  4. Activists will honor your commitment
  5. Journalists will get curious
  6. Include cookies, tea and homemade lemonaid, fundraisers, create a pleasant ambience.
  7. Include local petitions.
  8. Invite local activists, have a Q&A conversation on their causes and how you can best help them
  9. Record the encounter on film – for social and news media.
  10. Distribute flyers to conscientious citizens and youth.

WEEKLY PRESENCE can build a tremendous impact. Once again: the Exhibit, radiating inspirational energy and countless action opportunities are a magical asset!

  • for student clubs
  • for EDUCATION in general!

This revelation is important, because it builds common ground and understanding with teachers and school boards for not only permitting and tolerating your activities as a YL Warrior Clan, but actively supporting your work with space, time, resources, and active collaboration for implementing the non-formal YL Curriculum across all subjects and grades – powered by students.

Your Inner Roadmap
“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour.  And there are things to be considered . . . Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden. It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.” Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time!” “There is a river flowing now very fast.  It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.  They will try to hold on to the shore.   They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. “Know the river has its destination.  The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.   And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.  At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves.  For the moment that we do,  our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. “The time for the lone wolf is over.  Gather yourselves!  Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary.  All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” — attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder.
