What if you could identify the brightest, most resilient young people who have grown up in conflict or extreme poverty who have survived - and thrived - despite enormous odds?
What if you could bring them together in a sheltering space and help them heal, learn, and excel through exposure to leading thinkers and mentors in areas as diverse as entrepreneurship, neuroscience, technology, design, psychology - all focused on finding ways to dramatically improve the human condition through creativity, compassion, and innovation?
What if you could give them the tools, sanctuary, and encouragement to unfold and develop from their own unique blueprint into deeply authentic, connected human beings - with humility, openness, and an understanding of their place in the world as a part of the whole?
What if they used the power of their individual and collective voices to share their experience, to shed light on darkness, to bear witness to the resiliency of the human spirit? What if you could guide them to use their innate wisdom and hard-won knowledge to change their own worlds - and through that, they changed the world for us all?
