Creation. Innovation. Inspiration.

The world’s biggest social problems are complex and urgent.  No company or organization can solve issues like violence, economic inequality or poverty alone. We need leaders with different perspectives, skills, and experiences to come together to create fresh insights, ideas, and action to make progress and to help our students:

  • Deepen their understanding of concrete, real-world problems.

  • Generate hypotheses about key causes of the problems.

  • Design and test potential solutions.

  • Capture and share insights about what works and what doesn’t.

  • Identify opportunities to adapt and expand promising approaches.

Program Includes...

  • Design Challenges: formal lab events to familiarize participants with design tools and principles as well as the scope of the design challenge. Achieving key milestones to keep teams on track as they craft a thoughtful response inspired by the challenge by the end of the lab.

  • Ongoing Accelerator: self-guided activities where teams of students partner with industry professionals and community subject matter experts to put what they learn into practice building a business, initiative, campaign, or movement.

  •  Internships: we host student interns within   various departments of our organization,   giving them a behind the scenes look at the   world of non-profit management.

  • Design Fellowship: nonprofit organizations host a competitively selected student for a paid work experience focused around a specific research initiative or project designed to amplify or accelerate their work.
