You should dedicate around 10 hours for Design each week, including one to four hours of preparatory pre-work, four hours of live facilitated workshops, one hour for review, and 45 minutes of one-on-one coaching.
The Design curriculum includes our most popular workshops in four essential skill modules: foundational skills, taking stock, mapping your life, and leveling up. The full curriculum can be seen here.
The cost of the 5 week Design program is $1,995.
No, but we take care to match our participants with one of our coaches based on a number of factors, the most important of which is impact potential.
Our coaches are enormously skilled and enjoy working with young people with diverse interests. It doesn’t happen often, but if the match between participant and coach is not proceeding well we’ll intervene, and if the situation is untenable we’ll match you to a new coach.
We look to match our participants with a coach based on the potential for learning outcomes. Our coaches are working professionals representing a variety of job fields, many of which will be relevant to the interests to an individual student. Coaches share professional savvy from their own work experiences and help contextualize that for the participants they advise based on the interests of the individual. For instance, a skill we focus on in the program like goal setting might be applied differently for a participant interested in entrepreneurship versus another participant focused on the performing arts. It isn’t just about learning the skills; coaching adds the depth and insight and perspective of working professionals that show how those skills can be applied with professional etiquette. Some of the companies at which our coaches are employed full-time include Google, Lyft, University of California San Francisco, Airbnb, Newsela, Zapier, Diversibility, Tesla, and Microsoft.
This Experience is 100% online. Participants will use our learning platform for pre-work, meetings, conferences with coaches, and community discussions.
Academic credit is not available for the Design program. However, credit is available for our Semester Experience and Year Experience.
