BK Style Foundation is the proud fiscal sponsor of Team Solutionista's Black Community Wellness Project, a fundraiser to provide STEAM summer classes and wellness workshops to middle school and high school students in New York City.
Our goal is to raise $12,200 to host Design Detective Workshops for middle school and high school students throughout August. With everything school being cancelled, youth really need our support, and we need to learn how to better support them in the upcoming school year. Your tax-deductible contribution provides morning design detective workshops and luxurious extra-curricular activities for scholarship recipients, including movement, the arts, life skills training and other creative expression classes.
Purple Design Detective Guiding Principles:
Our goal is to detect the most purple solutions to the following challenges:
Week 1: Learning in the time of covid - what are the top needs and desires for the fall as learners and social creatures, and what would the most purple fall semester look like?
Week 2: Black Community Wellness - how can future generations support fairness and equality for black people in America?
Week 3: Purple Product Design - a framework for designing more socially and environmentally responsible products and systems
Week 4: Purple Community Design - a framework for designing and building entrepreneurship initiatives within low income communities of color.
