The BSA is proud to continue our long-term partnership with Apprentice Learning to bring hands-on design to Boston students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This week wraps up the fall workshop series with Boston eighth graders, where they worked at a variety of scales understanding the impact of design on the built environment.

Apprentice Learning provides real world work experiences for middle school students. The BSA helps the organization to leverage design career paths as a viable option for upcoming Boston students.

Our joint summer intensive workshop was featured in the Boston Opportunity Agenda's Generation Success. The “bright spot toolkit” was created to feature high-quality programs in Boston that are run by businesses to share examples of the great work already being done to prepare students for college, career, and life after high school.
