Flyer for BUILD's COVID-19 Virtual Design Challenge Training for educators.

BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success. BUILD believes in the power of our youth and their ideas and ability to solve real problems.

This professional development event will help attendees learn more about design thinking implementation for teenage students. After spending two hours skilling up, attendees will be provided access to the platform, as well as a facilitator guide and student facing material (10 hours of content).

In the challenge, students will create youth-driven solutions to promote mental and physical wellness amid the pandemic. Students will learn and exercise the 21st Century Skills that are incorporated. Please watch this 1 min Intro Video. 

Events will be held on the following dates (with more to be added):

  • January 12th, 2021
  • January 14th, 2021
  • January 19th, 2021
  • January 21st, 2021

The challenge will help students move from a place of anxiety, helplessness, and fear to a place of problem solving, agency, and power over this unsettling COVID-19 crisis.
