Puerto Rico is recovering from multiple disasters and trying to become an innovation island. You have the opportunity to participate in a historic moment in Puerto Rico, as it builds itself back from the bottom up, based on the innate resourcefulness and resilience of its communities. A high school in Bayamon (just outside San Juan) is looking for a few college students familiar with design thinking for entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, or community-based design to come to sunny Puerto Rico (Bayamon is the biggest and most innovative urban setting here) for J-term and assist by facilitating a community-based design project, and fostering grade 11 students’ “level two” deep design thinking skills and habits of mind. The school is all in, and you will be working with an outstanding team of educators and students. Shared housing will be at a reduced rate. Spanish is not a must, but it could be a great opportunity to practice!! Design Thinking and a desire to teach it are the basic requirements. See posting in Handshake and apply immediately!
