Our Network

10 years ago, ACTIVATE! created a network of young leaders - that now stands at over 4000 young people who are driving meaningful change in the country. In 2020, ACTIVATE! gave birth to the Academy - an online self-led learning platform.

Our Courses

The courses are designed to grow your capacity (skills and knowledge), promote interconnectedness through the sharing of our stories and experiences, and to shift mindsets so that we see ourselves as leaders of our own lives. Our courses utilize our 10 year ACTIVATE! Leadership experience.

Accessing the Academy

The Academy is your home – it’s your space to learn, to grow, to connect. You can access our courseware on our online learning portal or via our app - anywhere, anytime. And all for FREE!
