Back-to-School Tools and Resources for Middle School and High School Teachers

Coming soon in Fall 2021, we are launching a new version of the Design for Change platform for teachers to access our resources and organize their students' community action projects!

You'll be able to:

  • Add and invite students to teams under a class project that is working to solve a problem in the community

  • Learn how to teach the design-thinking process and inspire students to create change

  • Assign and guide student activities for each stage of the design-thinking process (Feel, Imagine, Do, Share)

  • Share your students' work with the world so they can gain awareness and support for their action project

This platform will be free for all educators and will serve as our home-base for all new resources in the future as well!

Inspire Change and Action on the First Week of School

Our blog and Empathy Media Network are real-life stories and learning experiences from teachers and students involved in community projects and social causes that are working to change the world for the better.

Once your students catch a glimpse of what it feels like to see and understand the world from different perspectives they may not have yet experienced, they'll be determined to do something about it.


Our resources will help you guide them in igniting that spark in design-thinking to solve the community's problems.
