Summer Youth CoLab Program


Developed and implemented by the NDC, the Summer Youth CoLab program empowers and engages local youth, builds a diverse pipeline to design careers, support local businesses, and expose interns to opportunities available in the profession. The program provides high school students with an opportunity to learn, design, and implement their ideas during a rigorous 6 weeklong schedule.

The program blends economic and community development with an educational internship that allowed students learn more about the design professions and refresh the exterior of a local business based on design efforts and ideas presented during the program.
