Changermaker Students arrive at the T-Mobile HQ

Top teams of youth innovators receive mentoring and funding, while the world benefits from young people's amazing ideas.

In partnership with Ashoka, we bring in the top teams out of hundreds of applicants to our headquarters in Bellevue, Wash., for an intensive, three-day workshop. This un-conference-style workshop has everything from peer activities to executive mentoring, helping the teams take their innovative projects to the next level.

At the workshop's completion, the category winners then pitch their projects to T-Mobile's top executives for a chance to win additional seed funding and more, to supercharge projects!
