Meet Our Founder

Hello, I’m Kelly Lovell.

I founded The Change Generation® (ChangeGen) to redefine the narrative of today’s youth and create a community of like-minded peers that embody the true passion and celebrate the impact of today’s young leaders.

Throughout this journey, I have encountered barriers due to age and negative stereotypes of the young generation, and yet, the aspiring leaders and young professionals I know are passionate, creative and committed to making the world a better place. This inspired me to create a place to unite us all and celebrate the change that young leaders not only can create, but already are!

My Mission

I am dedicated to creating opportunities for youth to thrive and harness their talents to solve social challenges.  I want to bridge opportunity gaps to ensure young voices are part of our decision-making processes and have the resources and support they need to reach their full potential.
From finding an affordable cure for malaria and revolutionizing the way those who are blind or partially sighted navigate their daily lives to starting a nonprofit as young as six to raise money for a neighbour, members of The Change Generation are not waiting for others make change happen.
This drive to change the world—to seek solutions for global challenges that affect us all—and to pave our own path in life is a defining characteristic of our generation. In essence, we are a generation defined by our dedication to each other and a better future, or as I have come to realize, we are a #ChangeGen.

Join ChangeGen
