The curriculum zeroes in on three aspects of design for social change: evolving your big idea, developing your pitch, and funding your project. These lessons will be divided into two tracks, as described below:
The program will run on two parallel tracks; the first will educate students on how to conceive and execute their own projects for social change with a focus on funding projects that are not client-based. For the second track students will participate in the development and full execution of a team project that addresses a pressing need within a predetermined community. The team projects for the program are being selected in partnership with desigNYC—a group of leading designers and design advocates with a mission of improving life in New York City by helping connect the nonprofit and professional design communities.
