The first

for young Malaysian changemakers

Takeover is Impact Malaysia’s signature outreach program. It is designed as a short workshop series for youths to discuss current issues related to their lives and community, and ideate possible solutions for local social problems.


The journey will not stop after Takeover

as participants will be given the opportunity to be a part of Impact Youth - our network of youth changemakers and volunteers. Impact Youth members will be exposed to opportunities on capacity-building and networking, for them to be able to create social change in local communities nationwide.


Who Are We Looking For?
