Young Innovators Camp- Channahon
The Young Innovators Program Helps Youth Build Big Ideas!
The FDS Young Innovators Program empowers kids to create, innovate and develop their entrepreneurial skills. We help kids uncover their passion, build prototypes and pitch solutions that bring meaningful change to the world. Students learn design methods and get hands-on experience building new business offerings.
Developed with world-class entrepreneurs and educators, the FDS experience is unique, transformative and an amazing way to develop leadership and critical thinking skills. Students are mentored throughout the process, and are exposed to thought leaders through our global network of entrepreneurs. Throughout the program they develop stronger confidence in themselves as creative entrepreneurs.
Future Design School is proud to offer this program in partnership with Channahon School District 17. Channahon District 17 is dedicated to providing for the academic, physical and social development of all students, staff and community members in an interactive, caring, safe environment that emphasizes real life applications and challenges each individual to be a productive citizen and lifetime learner who deals effectively with others and the changing world.
