community is at the heart
of what we do.
Whether you are a youth who's participated in one of our social impact journeys, an individual who resonates with what we do, an educator or parent looking for ways to unleash the potential in the youth under your care, or just someone seeking to uncover and bridge your own passion and purpose - be part of a community joined by a shared vision of a world made better by connecting individual passions to a larger purpose!
beginning may 2018 community meetups: fruitful fridays
Join the Skillseed team the last Friday of every month for an evening of meaningful conversation over a fruity feast! Share inspiration and insights, learn from each other, and find out how you can be a part of our vision of youth catalysing change by synergising passion and purpose.
the talking ground sessions
Explore some of the questions of our time: What does it mean to age positively? How might we travel responsibly? How can and should good intentions be translated into impactful action?
With the support of the National Youth Council, the Skillseed team hosted a series of intimate dialogues facilitated in a safe space for diverse individuals to come together to uncover the issues close to our hearts, unravel their complexity, and brainstorm potential solutions.

Attached to social impact projects, Skillseed volunteers undergo extensive training, immerse in our startup environment, and grow under nurturing mentorship to learn integral soft and hard skills to add to their toolkit.
