Together we can!
The All Grow Association is a non-profit organization that builds bridges and collaborative spaces that contribute directly to the development of children and indirectly to all those involved in our initiatives.
Our mission is to contribute to the development of an inclusive society where ALL members have access to the tools, resources and inspiration needed to GROW.
Our main initiative is Change Architects, which aims toturning children from spectators into architects of their own future through social entrepreneurship and community development. In this process, students develop their 21st century skills, including creativity, critical thinking, the ability to communicate, collaboration, problem solving, initiative and leadership, etc.
The innovation we bring to the educational landscape is the integration of Design Thinking and Maker Education methods and the creation of a student-centered change ecosystem to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030. The change is made from the bottom up at the grassroots together with a group of innovative teachers whose efforts have resulted in the birth of a community of educational innovators.
In the 2023-2024 school year, registration will open on October 5.
The Change Architects program represents the opportunity to show students that it is in their power to make the change they want, to make them find the most creative solutions and to prove to themselves that nothing is impossible. But the most important thing in this project was the fact that they were not forced to do anything they didn't want to do, and as a result they discovered that they also have a role in the community. Being a psychologist, the inclusion of the emotional side in the Design Thinking methodology and the motto "Together we can!" once again demonstrated the strength and power of the mind. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for an interesting experience!!!
