THE WONDERCHUMS COLLECTIVE
We're here to build the strengths and self-esteem of every child, but we can't do it without you
Welcome to the Wonderchums Collective
We are the people behind the Wonderchums. We are researchers, creators, childhood experts, technologists, parents and children from around the world.
We connect and collaborate to evolve and refine the Wonderchums project so it can best serve kids everywhere, and their grownups - be they supporters, teachers or carers.
We love a laugh and dance on zoom. But most of all, we are unapologetically passionate about seeing all kids thrive and we want to collaborate with others who feel the same.
We are movers, shakers, includers and creators. Will you join us?
Sign up here if you are interested to know more.
Mission driven, Kid-powered
We're on a mission to help kids embrace the unique superpowers they and others bring to the world.
Join us in creating magical stories and characters that come to life in digital conversations to help kids (along with their grownups) build their unique strengths and in turn, grow a kinder, wiser, more inclusive world.
Meet the Wonderchums Collective
We gather creatively and big-heartedly to throw ideas around, connect the dots and support each others' strengths and dreams... to collectively transcend old ways and reach new brave heights.
Join us to grow the Wonderchums Collective and participate in innovation and networking towards the Wonderchums mission.
