Grant Awarded: $16,250
Youth Design is a design-focused, career development mentorship program for urban youth. Its goal is to place talented public high school students into paid internships in the Boston area’s leading design firms, agencies and in-house design departments. Particularly for at-risk kids, this program exposes them to the many opportunities in the design field, teaches new skills and fosters understanding of the role of critical design thinking.
Grant money will go toward updating printed external communication and fundraising materials and to produce note cards from the winning entries in the “Time for Design” competition.
