United 4 Social Change (U4SC) is a nonprofit startup that develops effective civic leaders who write persuasively, speak passionately, and actively participate in the creation and dissemination of ideas.
The need for civic leaders (members of society who have the awareness, desire, and capacity to drive social change) is becoming apparent all over the world. People are either unable to see social ills, don’t appreciate the need for change, or don’t have the tools and skills to spur change.
This is why our work at U4SC has become ever crucial in making sure that everyone, and not just political and economic leaders, are participating in civic leadership.
We do this through a three-pronged approach that corresponds to the three levels of problems outlined above. We enlight them about social issues, ignite the fire within them to care about social problems and unite them to act towards social change.
