about radiant

This is for the bold. The go-getters, trend-setters, the change-makers, ground-breakers.

This is for you - through our workshops, programs, and community, we connect young people with the opportunities, networks, skills and inspiration to design and live the future they want. At the core of our operations is the goal of good - giving back to our communities, pushing for progress, and building a better world for all to share.

We believe that young people offer immense potential to the world, and strive towards a future in which all young people have the courage and tools to pursue their greatest selves.

THE STORY SO FAR

This was never the plan.

Radiant started as Frelsi & Limone, which we had planned to run in a social enterprise-centred model based on international projects and crowdfunding. Nevertheless, one pandemic and one cancelled world tour later, we had to adjust our goals.

Like many things, it’s often clearer to envision the development of Radiant in stages.

CHAPTER 1: The end of our original vision for Frelsi & Limone meant we were sort of wandering down a path with no direction. We knew the goal we wanted to achieve - a generation of confident, empowered, visionary youth - but didn’t know how we were getting there.

CHAPTER 2: Inspiration strikes. Young Visionaries Lab is created. Many cold emails, some rejections, and a lot of connections later, we completed our first social change incubator program. We didn’t predict that through the process, F&L would be given a renewed sense of clarity. We needed a new name, too (nobody could pronounce the old one - and it just wasn’t us).

CHAPTER 3: Drawing in. An intense period of self-reflection and creation. Our wonderful friend Liz joins the team. We’re given the opportunity to run Young Visionaries Lab again in collaboration with an amazing organisation - this time for an audience on the East coast (stay tuned!). We’re fostering connections with some incredible people. Inspiration strikes another time - and we’ve got more projects in store which we can’t wait to share with you. We’re finding our voice and our place. Radiant is born.

CHAPTER 4: We’re still writing this one. We don’t pretend to know all the answers, and we know we still have so much to learn. But we keep moving. Because we’re working towards a big goal - a world where young people have the opportunities and skills to fulfil their highest potential. Where they can be the change they wish to see in their communities, where they can rise while lifting others around them too. Where youth are recognised for their skills and talents, where their greatest ambitions are within their reach. Where we all have the ability to make the world around us better. That’s the world we want to live in. And we’d love to take you along for the journey too.

Are you in?
