It's truly an honour to be leading a movement that inspires young people to take leadership roles and make their mark on the world.

Our planet is more interconnected than ever before; we live in an age where information is instantly at our fingertips. Previous barriers to global challenges are now greatly reduced with our access to news and media from all parts of the globe. If there has ever been a time for young people to make a difference, it's now.

​At Make Your Mark, we strive to offer inspirational programs and resources to encourage young people to take action in our local and global communities and to help make the world a better place for everyone to live. Here's to changing lives, one person at a time."
