What is CYW Journey
Change Your World (CYW) Journey involves interactive and engaging events that empower the young generation to fight modern-day slavery and social injustice. The events give the youth creative opportunities to save lives and make a difference in their city. CYW Journey consists of a pre-event called Quest, a main event called Tour, and a post-event called Venture. It has a minimum lifespan of 3 months, though some have taken this journey and created long-term projects for their cities.
Quest is a 1 hour interactive session embedded with ice breakers, powerful media presentations, and exciting activities focusing on modern day slavery presented by the young generation to their own peers. All materials are created to be user friendly, easily duplicated, and presented independently. Over 12,000 youths have attended Quest in over 30 schools, colleges, and universities in 5 different cities.

Since 2009, CYW has inspired the millennial generation to make a difference in their cities by partnering different NGOs. Many have even initiated their own causes.
