Recruit and develop Agents of Change in the classroom

1. High potential young Malaysians join the Fellowship and teach for 2 years in high-need communities at a grassroots level

2. Existing in-service teachers with the aspiration to lead system transformation

We invest in their personal development through professional training and personalised coaching

Teach and empower students in low-income communities

We focus our impact on the most underserved students in high-need schools by developing their capabilities, their values, and their voice, to empower them to become young leaders capable of leading change in themselves and in their communities.

As part of the programme, innovation initiatives are created by Fellows and participants through collaboration with other teachers and community leaders to improve students’ outcomes and leadership

Mobilise a movement of education champions to facilitate collective impact

We are building a movement of Alumni leaders who are committed to our mission, that work together at every level in the public, private, and social sectors as teachers, social entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers, and advocates for the mission to co-create an ecosystem that is collectively invested in the education of our children.

Transform the education ecosystem and society

We work collaboratively with students, the Ministry of Education, our partners and supporters, Fellows and Alumni, and members of the public to bring long-term sustainable impact to the lives of children.
