Design For Change selected the “Supporting Refugees in Our Community” project by students from the Exploris School in Raleigh, NC to represent DFC USA at the annual DFC Global Conference “Be The Change” in Beijing, China in December 2016! This short video captures the work that 4th and 5th grade students at The Exploris School completed over the span of 3 months. Students broke out into 5 groups tackling 5 unique topics facing the Raleigh, NC community. The students were placed in their groups based on their expressed interests.
All topics selected are problems our community is currently facing, but also transcends to other communities around the world. We encourage you, whether young or old to find a way to get involved and help find sustainable solutions to these issues and show how Character Matters!
