We Design Together

In May 2017, youth programs at BSA Space received a generous award from The Architects Foundation and Armstrong World Industries Foundation to support We Design Together, an innovative partnership with Boston Public Schools. The goals of the program include: raising awareness and appreciation of architecture and design to children who may have never heard of it; allowing architects to teach their unique skill sets (design thinking and collaboration); and assisting the BPS with meeting its goal of introducing students at an early age to community members representing multiple life opportunities.

By creating a curriculum for kindergarten students, We Design Together will serve students who may otherwise not have the opportunity for a design education experience, nor work with or hear from an architect.

During the 2017-2018 school year, the We Design Together program will be piloted in classrooms throughout Boston.
