Design for Change USA
Design for Change is a global movement across 60+ countries, that empowers young people to transform themselves and the world around them. Every year, students do projects in their own community that not only improve lives but help them build character and key 21st century skills. Using a simple four step process rooted in design thinking- Feel, Imagine, Do, Share - students have shut down drug houses , helped refugees living in American food desserts , and addressed the teen suicide rate in their community. DFC can be implemented in the traditional school classroom, after school and outside of school - all that is needed is an adult mentor and a group of young people. DFC equips educators with Professional Development, curriculum and a free online platform.

I would love to talk to you about how we empower young people to realize their own potential to be agents of change in their own schools and communities. If you are interested in design thinking, service, and character education, let's connect!
