iLead+Design Summer Program 2017
Posted 05/15/2017 10:50AM

For the 5th year, York students have an opportunity to participate in an innovative summer program rooted in Design Thinking. iLead+Design provides local teens community‐oriented learning experiences anchored in design thinking (human‐centered problem solving and sense‐making) and creative leadership.

iLead+Design is founded on the belief that teenagers are key stakeholders in our local communities and, when afforded with purposeful opportunities to engage in authentic community challenges, they will contribute creative, meaningful, and viable solutions. In a partnership between York and the Middlebury Institute for International Studies, iLead+Design is offered through the Lyceum of Monterey County.

In iLead+Design teens explore complex community and organizational challenges and design innovative solutions. In addition to activities designed to foster collaboration, creativity, communication and leadership, iLead+Design introduces teens to Design Thinking (a process framed by empathy, observation, ideation, prototyping). The two week program embraces a bias toward action: designing must be active and solutions must be tested and realized.
