Change Ventur.es is our signature program at The Change School.  A 14-day experience program designed to create the foundations for growth, movement and transition, personally and professionally. We provide the space, community, tools and resources needed for individuals at a career or life crossroads to find clarity and direction to take action and make a change. Change Ventur.es helps you understand possibilities and establish your potential in order to move forward.  If you're looking to re-align your values with life and work then this program is for you.  

Throughout the 14 days we integrate elements of mindfulness, personal development, entrepreneurial and creative thinking as well as cultural intelligence.  In addition, we provide time for introspection, peer-based learning and excursions to engage the broader community. Change Ventur.es continues beyond the experience with follow up implementation calls and on-going peer-to-peer support.

The Change School combines personal discovery, entrepreneurship, leadership development and mindfulness to foster a culture of experiential learning order to better change ourselves and the world.

We believe that in order to change the world we must change ourselves. In order to change ourselves, we must deconstruct to reconstruct. Change Ventur.es helps individuals realise their potential and reset for the next stage of their life. We create the space and opportunity for individuals to realign with themselves and their bigger purpose whilst providing them the confidence, skills and knowledge to hit the ground running.
