Add your name to the waitlist for our turnkey curriculum kit for students grade 6–12.
The Design= program is focused on increasing awareness of design as a career path for Black, Brown, and Indigenous youth. By 2023, our goal is to reach 15,000+ students with programming that exposes them to the practice and profession of design.
Bringing together D×D’s youth program partners, educators, community-based organizations, and Amazon, Design= was co-developed to deliver interactive learning opportunities to thousands of young people to spark their interest in design.
Since October 2021, Design= has reached 760 students through our direct-to-classroom outreach, led and facilitated by D×D partner, designExplorr. We’ve been to 7 cities across the U.S., including Akron, Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.
Our open access curriculum kit launches in 2023. In it you’ll find interactive lessons you can use with grade 6–12 students that you teach or mentor. The kit includes lessons for you, the facilitator, as well as turnkey activities you can start with students.
