Sidebars_aboutproj
School: by Design is a Design Ignites Change youth mentoring initiative. Mentoring teams will examine the school ecosystem from the student’s vantage point to reimagine a more sustainable school, one that will improve now and continue to grow and thrive in the future. The project will connect students to a subject they know well, and one in which they are likely to have strong opinions.
