Design Ignites Change also offers two amazing self-guided mentoring programs that provide exciting opportunities for your student chapter to make a big difference in your community: • SCHOOL: BY DESIGN • CREATE! DON’T HATE SCHOOL: BY DESIGN, developed in conjunction with the Designers Accord, puts social and sustainable design thinking into action by asking high school students to “redesign your school.” With a robust set of guides as well as support from Design Ignites Change, you will be empowered with the tools to easily coordinate a mentoring program that gives students real world experience using design to communicate their ideas, exhibit their potential and take action in their own lives. This new program is particularly conducive for implementation and exploration in the field of interior design. The high school with the most compelling solution will win $10,000 to implement their idea. Your concepts must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2010, to be eligible for the award.

ASID has recently partnered with Design Ignites Change to help promote community outreach projects that involve design work resulting in positive social impact. Many ASID student chapters are already pursuing such projects and the Design Ignites Change website provides a platform for your chapter to share your achievements prominently online and receive added publicity and recognition from the larger design community!
One example of such student chapter outreach work is the ASID University of New Haven Student Chapter’s work on the West Haven Community Dollhouse Project (winner of the 2008-2009 ASID Community Service Project of the Year Student Chapter Award), in which student chapter members taught grade school children about the power of interior design through the use of experiential learning with dollhouses. See how your student chapter can highlight such work online through the Project Case Studies section of the Design Ignites Change website! In addition to your much-deserved recognition, you may even have a chance at placing in the prestigious Implementation and Idea Awards.
With the CREATE! DON’T HATE program, students and their design mentors will create powerful public billboards that address the theme of tolerance in a variety of compelling and thought-provoking ways.The program is designed to give participating students the tools and guidance they need to create an impactful message which will have broad visibility within their community. Several chapters of AIGA, the professional association for design, have already successfully implemented CREATE! DON’T HATE in cities across the U.S., acquiring some great visibility for their professional and student chapters as well as attention from local media; see these projects from New York City, Portland and Baltimore. For more information about either of these mentoring programs or to register visit: httwwww.designigniteschange.org and click the “mentoring” link.
