Every field - law, art, business, medicine, policy, biology, media, etc - is being transformed right now by incredible technologies like AI, robotics, genetic engineering and many more. This means jobs evolve faster than ever - and that figuring out how to navigate life after high school can feel like you're aiming blind!

That's why we created this program for you: learn about future tech from AI to VR & how it impacts our lives and jobs; create a plan for a career that combines what you love with what this modern world needs; learn how to use your talents to change the world with the help of technology & in-demand skills; and how to transform your mind & habits into a superpower to achieve your goals.

Interested in learning about future technologies & trends?

Are you ambitious but unclear about your career or studies?

Do you want to learn real-life skills & how to make an impact?

Do you want to up your performance at school and in life?

Then Gamechangers Academy is for you!

Our goal is to help you feel more prepared for life beyond school, and for a future that is rapidly changing due to technology

8-Day Bootcamp

You're not sure yet - or have only a vague idea - of your dream career & degree? This is the bootcamp for you!

 

No matter your field of interest: we help you find  your future-ready path! Learn about 10 technologies - from AI to XR - and their impact on future jobs. Create a smart career plan based on your increased self-awareness & knowledge of future trends. And gain foundations of life & job skills to realise your goals!

4-Day Bootcamp

You're 100% certain of the career & studies you want to pursue? Check out this bootcamp!

 

It focuses purely on future tech (AI, 3D printing, robotics, etc) & future skills (coding, personal finance, design thinking, etc), but skips the career guidance, self-awareness & future job trends. You'll gain knowledge and skills which traditional schooling doesn't teach, yet that are crucial to let you navigate the future & become a leader!

We Prepare You For Your Future

Our 8-Day Bootcamps provide you with all the below five benefits.

The 4-Day Bootcamps cover the first two.

Understand future technology & trends

Every professional field is currently being rapidly transformed by technology. Knowing about resulting opportunities & challenges is crucial to navigate the future. That's why we show you how 10 technologies - AI, 3D printing, robotics, the Internet of Things, AR, VR etc - and economic trends will affect our lives & careers, and how you can thrive amid them!

Learn in-demand skills to become a leader

To succeed in the future, you will need to both be able to manage yourself and others. We teach you the life skills you need - how to manage yourself in terms of personal finance, stress, energy and resilience, learn effectively, etc - and leadership skills. We also teach you basics of in-demand job skills (coding, data analysis, sales, entrepreneurship, etc) which nearly all careers will require!

Build the game plan for your life

By the end of the program, you'll be clear on your career and life goals and what skills, knowledge and further education you need to achieve them. You'll have a roadmap with actionable next steps (internships, uni, job, etc) - whether your focus is getting a dream job or starting a company one day. It covers up to 10 years & is adaptable over time.

Use what you love to make a difference

If you want to have a long & purposeful career that is well-paid, it usually requires that you solve big problems for a group of people. We give you a snapshot of current social, economic & environmental problems. We also show you how tech can be used to solve these problems at scale. You pick 1-3 that you want to further explore in your career.

Get access to mentors & networks

After graduation from the academy, we stay in touch. Networks and continued learning are key to your success, so we match you to a mentor in your dream career and suggest further education. We also check-in after 6 months to see if you're advancing with your goals. Lastly, our alumni events ensure you continue to inspire each other!

Program Philosophy

A diagram

Our bootcamps are based on the notion that being sustainably future-ready in an ever faster advancing world requires identifying your personal intersection of the 4 elements pictured in this diagram - and then regularly re-evaluating & updating it.

Our 4- and 8-Day Bootcamps help you understand ‘what the world needs’ through knowledge of future tech & trends. Our 8-Day Bootcamp in addition helps you understand the remaining 3 components: 'what you can be paid for, what you are good at & what you love'

Plus, knowing and acquiring the skills to then act on the insights from this chart is even harder. That's why we also upskill you to enable you to meet challenges that come with pursuing your goals, from topics like entrepreneurship to productivity, and guide you via further resources so you can keep learning.

What you will gain

In the 8-Day Bootcamp you will gain skills and knowledge in all the below listed three areas.

Gamechangers inspired and taught me so incredibly much! Especially the future tech part. I understand the world around me - and myself! - in a way I couldn't before. I know now not just what I want to pursue, but also how to get there and how to make an impact through it!

FAQs

  • Do I need to have perfect grades in school to be eligible for this program?
    While we certainly appreciate everyone who has amazing high school grades, that is not a must-have criterion. What is important is that you have a genuine interest in the program (including ideally technology, business, politics or entrepreneurship), an emerging set of interests and passions, that you care about some social causes, and that you are willing to learn.
  • Is this program only focused on careers in the tech or business sector?
    No. The program's goal is not to push you into a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) or business career - we want you to pursue YOUR interests and build out YOUR strengths, which is why the outcome of this program is highly personalised for everyone. If you want to become an artist who works with oil paint, an actor in a theatre, or anything that seems not related to tech at first, we will help you develop your plan to achieve that. The reason why we nevertheless teach about technology trends is because no matter your field of interest, your field will be affected by tech! Yes, even as an artist who is painting with oil colours. If you don't know how to take advantage of technology in your particular field and what to watch out for, you'll be at a disadvantage. We therefore provide you with all the information and strategies you need to make an informed decision, identify how you might be able to leverage tech even in a non-tech career, and the skills to navigate your future career jungle seamlessly.
  • Will I need a laptop to participate in the program?
    Yes - a lot of the exercises we do as part of the program will require you to be able to research areas of your interest quickly.
  • In which languages are the bootcamps held?
    We currently offer our bootcamps in English and German. From 2025 onwards, we will also start offering them in French.
  • Do I receive a certificate for completing the bootcamp?
    Yes, everyone receives a digital and printed certificate!
  • Do I need to live in Luxembourg to be able to participate?
    For our 1:1 Flexible Online program, you do not need to live in Luxembourg, as it can be taken 100% online. If you live within 2h of Luxembourg, we do recommend however to at least do the first session in-person in Luxembourg City, as it is always nicer if we can get to know you in-person rather than just digitally! However for the 8-Day Group Holiday Bootcamps, we do recommend living within max. 1h away from Luxembourg City. We currently cannot offer accommodation, so it is most convenient if you are able to go back home in time after each day (which starts at 10am and ends at 5.30pm).

The Location

20200701_154605 (002)_edited.jpg

The Group Bootcamps are held in a modern office right in the heart of Luxembourg City: in the beautiful street of Rue Goethe, just off the Avenue de la Liberté.

It is easily accessible by public transport: the closest tram stop is Place de Metz. The closest bus stops are Spuerkeess as well as Rue Heine and Ste Zithe, each just one to two streets away.

There are also plenty of nice cafés and restaurants around at which to grab lunch.
