Design Mentorship Program
introducing students to the world of design
About the Program
The Design Mentorship Program has the potential to chart the course for students’ education and career paths.
The Sasaki Foundation Design Mentorship Program, launched in 2019 through a partnership with American Student Assistance, provides the opportunity for local middle school students to discover what is possible through the field of design. Through a monthly after-school program at the Incubator at Sasaki, students receive extensive exposure to careers in design as provided by Sasaki designers. Students are beginning to explore their interests in the field of design, and through the program are better exposed and more uniquely positioned to assess the future opportunities available to them.
