Chime In is an international, youth based, youth-driven, adult-supported initiative that educates the future (compassionate) leaders of the world by inspiring self-responsibility, endowing cutting edge leadership skills, and providing the platform for them to “chime in” and make a positive difference in the world. Instead of pointing the finger at others for what’s wrong with the world, we believe in the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi, that we must be the change we wish to see in the world. And as we make that commitment and Chime In, one by one, and invite others to do the same, we will give rise to a more harmonious world.
Who We Are:
Chime In is an international organization of Youth Ambassadors, ranging in age from 16-25, who are currently representing Uganda, Kenya, Dubai, Pakistan, Mongolia, Jordan, Honduras, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Nepal, Nigeria, and Guatemala.
The adult mentors who support our youth community are international, multicultural visionaries (and “action”aries) with expertise in leadership development, international diplomacy, service programs, media, marketing, education, content creation, diversity training, and spirituality.
We are an all hands on deck operation, and invite the world, young and old, to step in and become “ChangeMakers—those who commit to self-responsibility and action toward being the change in their communities.
Core Values: Our core values are reflected in the single word CHANGE:
Collaboration–We believe in an “all hands on deck” way of operating, and that the whole is larger than the sum of its parts.
