DESCRIPTION

If you’re an enthusiastic and dynamic designer who is passionate about improving the lives of kids, then we want you and your ideas to join our team!

We are looking for amazing designers to help our young and eager entrepreneurs bring their product visions to life.

Our mission is to prepare kids for the future by teaching them how to develop and realize a bolder vision for themselves. We do this by exploring entrepreneurship and financial literacy through game-based teaching.

Each program lasts two days and takes place during the weekend or after school. Before the start of each program, you will be given paid training. Once a session begins you will arrive ahead of students and help set up. Throughout the day, you will take on various mentorship and design support responsibilities.

After each session, you will help write parent debriefs of each child’s experience in the program. The purpose of these debriefs is to give parents the tools and information to reinforce what their child learned throughout the experience.
