Stories of Change from DFC USA
What if you witnessed third graders shut down a drug house? What if we told you about fifth graders to creating a pipeline between farmers and those living in food deserts? What if you saw high schoolers increase the number of mental health professionals at their school? Would you believe these stories of change?
At DFC, we not only believe, we have seen what is possible when students are given the tools to drive social change in their community.
Stories of Change from Design for Change USA
In 2018, DFC USA received over 200 projects of change. Each student team identified an issue in their community and used the Feel, Imagine, Do, Share framework to design and implement a solution.
