Design Thinking for Stronger Citizens & Communities

  Students from Bayamón tell their story about why it works.  

What if we could... 
empower young people to thrive in meaningful purpose-driven lives, to heal from disasters, to connect with nature and innovate climate solutions, and to create more equitable, sustainable, enterprising and resilient communities and systems? 
"I feel like I could land in any challenging situation and work with others to figure it out."         
-Kurt, 2015
