Our Method

Local action for stronger impact

PfC facilitiates initiatives for community improvement. To bring the PfC movement closer to the everyday life of each of us, and to build action and concrete focus, we develop local PfC Community Change Initatives, working with ongoing projects throughout the year.

Each local group till choose tasks relevant to their local challenges. The local community group will consist of individuals from all sectors of the community, and will build national and local partnerships as they see relevant.  The participants will be visionary and solution-oriented people of diverse ages and backgrounds who together can create and carry out well-defined action plans.

Through the PfC platform, the local groups of change makers including youth leaders, academia, mentors, businesses, and artists will create a global network.  PFC  seeks to build partnerships where all bring what they can offer to the table.  For some, this is the innovative ideas, others may have experience and network, while some have financial muscle. Others again may contribute  research and knowledge. Our

PfC facilitates this network and contributes  methodology and toolkit for social innovation. A set of requirements for developing a PfC Community initiative will be developed, and tools for measuring and reporting results will be provided.

Partners in Change and their assets

Change makers contribute ideas and energy. Around the world a growing number of people see a need for change and are taking action. Social media and a growing sense of global community aid their work. Within the PfC arenas of Rights, Responsibilities, and Governance, changemakers, yound and old, successfully resolve challenges and inspire others to imagine solutions and become change makers themselves.

Youth Leaders/Academia. Colleges and universities prepare young adults to become the business and thought leaders of tomorrow. Academia brings rigor, discipline and science to PfC’s programs, and youth leaders will form one-half of the youth-mentor system at the heart of each Action Guild. The young people who are inheriting the world’s economic, environmental, and social challenges must be able to clearly identify the critical issues in their communities and then be empowered to resolve those challenges with the help of mentors who have the experience, wisdom, networks, clout, and power to take action. This is the role of youth leadership in creating a sustainable future, and PfC’s Initiatives are the instruments for training, guiding, and empowering them to succeed and meet specific goals.

Elders/Mentors. Our seasoned leaders in politics, philanthropy, and business who have perhaps moved on from the most active years of their careers are invaluable resources for strengthening a new generation of leaders. With common commitments to human rights and a sustainable environment and economy, mentors and youth leaders will work together in the Community Initiatives to bring the best resources of both to the table. PFC mentors may have generated wealth and experience in business, and those resources, as well as mentors’ connections to other business leaders, will build working networks in PfC. Many elders have a sincere interest in “giving back” to the next generation and find it energizing to work with and mentor young people who are passionate about bringing about positive change.

Business. As the engine of the global economy, businesses have already stepped across borders and become our first true global citizens. Businesses lead the way in creating wealth and innovation. Without their involvement, an impactful and self- perpetuating change movement is unlikely. They will bring talent, financial resources, infrastructure, ideas, and other benefits to PfC’s Initiatives, and business leaders may also be some of our elders/mentors.

The Arts. Music, dance, literature, poetry, film, and studio arts provide universal languages that unite and inspire. As changemakers, young leaders can find exciting ways to incorporate the arts in their strategies for raising awareness of issues and revealing to the world that collaboration can cross all boundaries—political, cultural, ethnic, national, and more.
