We are very excited to be hosting our first ever 5-day summer program at Stanford's d.school to help young people develop a sense of purpose and become meaning-makers.
Our 5-day summer program will be held at Stanford's d.school from July 8th-12th. We will immerse students our Wayfinder Navigation Toolkit + mix in experiential education from purpose learning, outdoor ed, and design thinking. This will be a FUN and exciting opportunity for students to help them figure out what is meaningful to them and begin to craft lives of purpose.
FAQ about the summer program
Our staff will include some of our awesome program and product team. The mornings will be spent getting introduced to our Wayfinder Navigation Toolkit. In the afternoons, we will be doing experiential education including design thinking, wilderness training, hiking, and some mindfulness activities (see a rough outline of our 5-day program here).
Most activities will be held on Stanford's campus but we will be venturing off on some days to local parks for hiking, survival skills, and wilderness navigating training. The program will run from 10am-6pm each day. Lunch and snacks will be provided, but not breakfast or dinner. Students must have completed freshman year of high school. Graduating seniors are also allowed to apply.
