Future Creator Camp brings teens (13 - 17 years old) and youth together to learn about the most impactful social innovations and take the first step to imagine and build their own future. It is a highly experiential, experimental and empowering learning journey, where we believe it is never too early to inspire our youth to dream, dare and do.
In August 2018, we brought 21 teens and 6 teachers from Thailand and Vietnam to Singapore with the generous scholarship support by Mistletoe, in collaboration with One Maker Group and Teach for Vietnam. They gathered in Singapore to explore some of Singapore’s iconic urban landscapes, engage in dialogue with entrepreneurs, creative professionals and social innovators to acquire deep knowledge and stories about the social innovations in sustainability, urban planning and human resource development.
Learning how Singapore has made use of innovation despite close-to-zero resource availability to move from a third world to first world country, they were challenged and inspired to apply Singapore solutions to adapt and imagine a solution for their own nations. They were taught the creative and technical skill to ideate and prototype the future that they imagine, through making use of maker facilities such as hand tools, 3D printers, electronics and micro-controllers.
Across the entire process, we facilitated the integration and cultivation of Gumption values in each learner and accelerate the personal development of 6C leadership (Calm, Compassion, Courage, Curiosity, Commitment, and Collaboration).
