ABOUT US

VISION

 

Design 4 Impact (D4i) is a student-led startup that aims to bring more real world problem solving to K-12 education, so that students are inspired to be changemakers in their communities. The driving belief behind D4i is that scaling design-driven impact work— be it service learning, mural painting, volunteering, social innovation, entrepreneurship, design challenges, or internships—is impossible without collaboration between our 3 stakeholder groups: *Schools, **Industry, and ***Community. D4i is only the latest, albeit biggest, step forward in a four-year journey of curriculum development, classes, community building, and events in social innovation education between Avenues and a growing network.
