Design Ignites Change logoDesign Ignites Change, a strategic partner of AIGA, is an annual program that encourages talented high school and college students from across the country to use design thinking and innovation to create messages for, and solutions to, complex social problems.

A major component of Design Ignites Change is a mentoring program in which college students, educators and professionals will work with underserved high school students to develop projects that will benefit their own communities while giving them a voice on important social issues.

Through this strategic partnership, AIGA will be able to showcase finalist student projects from the Aspen Design Challenge on the Design Ignites Change website. In addition, local AIGA chapters that participate in this youth mentoring initiative will be represented in the projects section of the Design Ignites Change website.
