PARTNER PROFILE

Founded in India in 2009, Design for Change has partnered with nearly 30,000 educators to facilitate over 27,000 stories of student-driven change around the world. Design for Change is a global movement of young people and educators using design thinking for social impact. Design for Change USA trains and equips educators in the design thinking cycle, using a simple 4-step process: Feel, Imagine, Do, Share.

Every year, student change-makers have an opportunity to investigate challenges and assets in their communities to lead their design of a community change project. Linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, students begin creating local impact connected to a global effort. Students, then, have a platform to share the story of their learning process and their community impact.
