Our Vision

Cultivating Young Visionary Leaders

Inspired out of the work of Vanessa Stone and the Amala Foundation and the deep desire to expand this transformational work around the globe; the Institute for Emerging Visionaries was born. We recognize that there is a deep calling in response to the state of the world today and it is our responsibility to rise up and a foster a generation of inspired visionaries with the tools they need to honor what is truly alive in them and in service to humanity.

The Institute for Emerging Visionaries is a three year educational immersion program dedicated to creating environments and experiences for revolutionary youth to deepen themselves, their skills and knowledge so that they can actualize their humanitarian visions for the world. Our inspiration comes from years of working with youth from around the world and witnessing the immense power they have within when given the environment to be seen and heard.

We see the need and are committed to creating alternative learning experiences that support young visionary leaders to have the tools, resources and mentorship to rise up and realize their visions in service to humanity. Our emphasis is on mentoring youth who are inspired to create projects that promote unity, diversity, vulnerability, authenticity and build a more united and peaceful world. Our approach is founded in the "Village Model" that was created through the Global Youth Peace Summit. The heart of our "Village Model" approach is anchored in a co-creative environment that is intergenerational, multi-cultural, interfaith and in honor of our humanity and collective healing.

The Institute for Emerging Visionaries offers a three-year immersed learning opportunity in the fields of humanitarian studies, community healing arts, project implementation and personal evolution, growth and healing.
