Changemakers thrive on turning ideas into positive change, whether big or small. Changemakers are students like you. They take action. They make the world a better place for themselves and for others. You can do it at your own pace. And you can focus on what you care about most. At MDC we want all students to discover their changemaking powers. It’s fun for you. And it’s great for the community.
Changemaking happens when your desire for positive change intersects with your ability to make change happen. To be a changemaker, you need to want positive change, and you need to have the right set of skills and mindsets to help make that change happen.

MDC goes Styrofoam free thanks to these students!
As president of MDC’s environmental sustainability student group, the Yes Club, Maria Parra spearheaded an effort three years ago to ban Styrofoam containers from MDC’s eight campuses. She rallied the support of the College to begin offering sustainable alternatives. When Maria graduated last year, her peers carried the cause forward, signing petitions and working with College staff to negotiate new contracts with external service providers. Today their work has paid off.
