Transformers

What Is The Transformers Movement?

Transformers is a Global Movement of people who make a difference through what they love to do. We were born with eyes fixed on the world, with a very open heart, and with an indomitable will to participate, collaborate, and transform.

It is our goal to connect talented people to young people in different communities across the country for at least9 months. These talented people become mentors for these young people, who gain a reference figure and the opportunity to learn and practice something that they love for at least 9 months. At the end of the program, each young person is challenged to use the talent he/she has learned to transform his community. When this mission is accomplished, the young person officially becomes a transformer - someone who uses what he/she most likes to do to foster positive transformation in society.

Among us, you will find b-boys, skaters, poets, musicians, dancers, footballers, chefs, programmers, painters, fighters, chess players, actors, illustrators, cyclists, explorers, tennis players, inventors, and much more.
