of Young Leaders
When technological and societal changes are happening at an accelerating rate, a new generation of kids and teens enters an era of empowerment. They are a generation who taps into the power of collective intelligence of extended minds networked together. They are young Pilots of our Planet, who - with proper guidance and in an encouraging community - are capable of vastly improving the world, personally, locally, and globally.
This new abundant world will empower us to solve even the biggest challenges in education
Out of Education
Lack Basic Skills
Academic model of providing content and control fails the world in the third millennium when kids will explore not just the Earth, but outer space. When they will investigate and understand the human mind and brain, new kinds of worlds - digital and virtual - that are still being born, solve problems that our planet and our species face, as we never could in the past. And they will do it now, in their early and formative years, because technology and context that are continuously extending their minds and capabilities equip them with new powers.
This calls for New Ways of Learning. Ways that will harness collective intelligence and fully embrace this emerging human potential. This calls for an empowerment approach of coaching Pilots to accomplish effectively through trust, respect, independence, self-directed learning, co-creation, collaboration, and empathy - along with powerful use of community and technology.
This calls for the Planet Pilot Way.
We believe that together with our youth, guides from diverse professions, educational institutions, and local and global organizations we can co-create an education that adapts to the needs of times by building, measuring, and learning from 1000+ ways to empower kids to create a better future for the planet.
Our First Impact: The Quest
We begin our journey of seasonal experimentation with Quests.
Our Quests gather kids and teens from around the world to collaborate in solving real-world problems while building a portfolio of experience and allowing for interdisciplinary and social-emotional learning
