To our design community at large,
If there is one act of generosity you plan on making this holiday season, I hope it can be in the name of design. Let’s help to design social change together by supporting a local organization dedicated to that mission.
Youth Design’s 10 For 10 Campaign is celebrating 10 years of impact to young designers and AIGA Boston asking designers across the country to donate $10 as a show of support. If you give in the next 24 hours, your gift will be matched and you can double your impact to this amazing organization. If you don’t have the capacity today, I ask that you please join me in supporting this organization before the end of the 2013.
Please donate at: https://www.fundraise.com/youth-design/10for10
Together we can realize longer lasting change with young talent in our communities. Your gift will allow Youth Design to further engage with the national design community and continue to provide talented urban youth with access, training, and mentorship opportunities in the design industry for the next 10 years.
Youth Design supports the next generation of diverse young designers by:
- Providing mentorships with professional designers
- Creating critically needed paid summer jobs
- Delivering robust design workshops and technical training
- Providing access to networks across the professional design industry
- Providing support with workforce readiness and life skills
Every gift to the 10 For 10 campaign brings us all one step closer to inspiring a collective force for change in the lives of creative urban youth.
Together we can open design career pathways for talented urban youth.
President, AIGA Boston
