T-Mobile’s Changemaker Challenge is a nationwide contest that encourages the next generation to create positive change in their communities.

Top teams of youth innovators receive mentoring and funding to bring their amazing ideas to life, impacting the world around them.

In partnership with Ashoka, the T-Mobile Foundation brings in the top teams out of hundreds of applicants to the T-Mobile headquarters in Bellevue, WA, for an intensive, three-day workshop. This un-conference-style workshop helps teams take their projects to the next level and focus on developing critical changemaking skills and community building. Teams also receive mentorship from T-Mobile employees, creating the opportunity for them to tap into a vast array of unique expertise to help supercharge their projects.
