The T-Mobile Foundation, T-Mobile and Ashoka, are teamed up to kick off the third Changemaker Challenge. This nationwide opportunity gives trailblazing young leaders (ages 13 to 18) the chance to take their ideas on how to create more connected, sustainable and inclusive communities and make them a reality. 

We search for innovative ideas that focus on Technology, the Environment or Education – all with an eye towards creating more connected, sustainable and inclusive communities. Teams with winning ideas received an all-expenses paid trip to Bellevue, WA for the three-day intensive Changemaker Lab workshop hosted at T-Mobile’s headquarters, along with ongoing mentorship, skills development, and up to $15,000 in seed funding to supercharge their ideas.

Meet the 16 bold young changemakers whose projects won the 2021 T-Mobile Changemaker Challenge here.
