Help Send Design4Impact to SXSWedu


Design 4 Impact is a student-led startup based at Avenues: the World School. Our mission is to bring design thinking, social innovation, and real-world problem solving to K12 so that all students are empowered to be changemakers in their communities. See our website and newsletter for more information on past projects.

Last November, we were selected as the only high school group (out of 1400 proposals) to host a summit at SXSWedu 2018. There, we will have a half-day summit, panel discussion, and possible booth in the main presentation area. Your donations will be crucial in helping us pay for plane tickets and lodging. 

SXSWedu is a unique opportunity for D4i (a student-led startup) to test our evolved model and approach in front of an international audience without hosting our own conference. 

Sending the team to SXSWedu is an experience against which to measure our progress; and will inform our short and long-term direction. If you do one thing to support D4i this year, make it helping us go to SX to share our work with the world!

Note: Ms. Finn-Welch is one of our faculty advisors on our trip to SXSWedu, which is why she is the beneficiary!
