Global Shapers Cleveland

Serving Recovers communities:

The Global Shapers Community, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, is an international network of young leaders. Created to empower youth to self-organize for impact and to amplify the voice of young leaders, the Shapers Community is a network of over 300 city-based hubs full of change-makers looking to positively impact the world.

Here in Cleveland, we believe there are hundreds of energetic citizens looking for a way to positively impact our city.

Our hub's goal is to leverage the passion of this diverse group of young leaders (ages 20-30) to create local change by sparking critical conversations, prototyping design solutions, supporting community partners, and approaching problems through the lens of human-centered design.

How do we do that? Our strategy is a three-pronged approach:

  1. Cultivate. Examine our project intentions, community needs, and potential project impact while developing an internal culture that is conducive to meaningful social impact.

  2. Amplify. Support community partners by sourcing our members’ passions & skills to complete shorter, focused projects. These opportunities help members build critical skills while creating immediate impact.

  3. Intensify. Dedicate our resources and our knowledge to the realization of member ideas and community partner needs.
