GSL Catalyst | Changemakers

Thank you for your interest in taking part in the GSL Catalyst course!

This space has been designed to help you to work through your social action project. We have also included helpful resources that you’ll be able to access easily with the aim of supporting your Changemaker journey as your work through your project.


Rise is a program that finds promising young people and provides opportunity as they work to serve others. The program seeks young people ages 15 to 17 and encourages a lifetime of service and learning by providing support that may include need-based scholarships, mentorship, networking, access to career development opportunities, and the potential for additional funding as Rise Global Winners work to develop bold ideas for public benefit. 

It is essential to sign up to the Rise platform to receive updates and important programme dates whilst you work on your project. Note: Applicants must be 15-17 as of July 1, 2024, meaning they were born on or between July 2, 2006 and July 1, 2009
