Design for Change for Students
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
