WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
FOR REAL.

WHAT IS DD ACADEMY?

Probably one of the best youth development programs in the world. For free.
We help students become defenders of the open society.

You don't know exactly what to do with life, but you have a hunch that it should be something important? Something that will be remembered and that makes life better for other people? Then you're in the right place!

DD Academy is meant for people like that - who would want to change the world, but don't yet know how to do it. This is what you'll learn in DD Academy - how to bring about real positive change in the society.

We have created our program by combining the best interactive training methods from around the world - instead of lectures we have practical exercises, projects, debating, group work etc.

This is why we can promise our participants that by the end of the program, you will have changed - into a more confident, charismatic, organised, knowledgeable and more capable person!

    learning by doing.

  • STRENGHTS

  • COMMUNITY

    the most active friends
    and companions for life.

  • PURPOSE

    Find your aim
    and work towards it.

It is not possible to change anything in the world without understanding yourself. Because of that we are focusing on self-awareness and self development throughout the program.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

To change the world we also need to understand it. Why something is happening? How to understand any situation better?

Go to DEFENDING OPEN SOCIETY

WHO IS IT FOR?

The people with the highest potential ought to be carrying the heaviest of responsibilities in the society. Or, with the words of Spider-man's uncle: "With great power comes great responsibility". We are looking for these young people with great potential, who have not yet found a way to realize their ambitions.
