YouTube Creators for Change is an ongoing global initiative that spotlights inspirational Creators who use YouTube to foster productive conversations around tough issues and make a positive impact on the world.

Strategy and Execution

Within the program, Creators for Change Ambassadors receive mentorship and promotional support to aid the creation of their "Impact Project" films. From a beauty vlogger in California to a rapper in Sudan, a painter in Germany to a comedy collective in India, these Creators tell stories from around the world, sharing moments of hope, humanity and acceptance.

On November 12, 2018, Creators for Change organized the release of the 50+ Impact Projects through a unified "One View Can" campaign that aims to promote tolerance, encourage empathy and spark dialogue globally. The release of the films was supported by a social media activation, sparking conversation about how one's view can make a difference, using the hashtag #MyViewCan.


The Creators for Change films garnered over 50M views, and the campaign reached millions of people and drove positive conversation on social media. Many were excited to share the films on social, and to talk about how their view can make a difference in the world, using #MyViewCan.
