Design for Change for Students

Student-Led Change

Design for Change is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit that offers design thinking resources and hands-on learning opportunities for students to solve the world's biggest problems. 

Students can join our online platform and global network of leaders and start creating change today. All it takes is the support of a teacher or adult mentor and a spark of inspiration to ignite change.
 

BEGIN TAKING ACTION 

Are you passionate about a problem in your community or have an idea on how to solve it?

Are you curious about ways you can design solutions and start a social movement?

Do you know that you have what it takes to inspire others with your positive actions?
 

We invite you and your peers to access our DFC Student Canvas, an online space for you to document and share your change project with the world. Watch and see how the positive impact you create, multiplies over time.
