Red Bull Amaphiko Academy launches in the US

Are you changing your corner of the world? Red Bull Amaphiko is looking for creative and entrepreneurial change makers to attend their Amaphiko Academy in Baltimore, taking place August 11-20, 2017.

Applications for the inaugural US Red Bull Amaphiko Academy may be submitted from March 1, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. PST until April 30, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

If you’re using your talent and energy to tackle social problems, then the Academy is looking for you. Applicants must have moved beyond the idea stage, even if you’ve only taken very early first steps. Academies have already taken place in South Africa and Brazil, and have transformed the lives of over 50 people who’ve taken part – alongside thousands of people benefiting from their smart solutions to social issues.

The ten day Academy will take place in Baltimore. You’ll take part in inspiring workshops and lectures, and will work on your projects with leading experts and mentors. You’ll also network with social innovators from across the USA and the world. Participants will be offered a bespoke 18 month post-academy development program, which offers access to incredible opportunities and networks. If you are selected as a finalist or attendee for the Amaphiko Academy, all required travel, accommodations, and daily expenses will be covered by Red Bull Amaphiko. You must be a US resident and at least 18 years old at the time of application to participate.
