Wildfire Fall 2016

The Task

I took a social entrepreneurship class called Designing Ventures to Change the World in which my group addressed the summer acheivement gap for low income students in urban areas. We crafted a pitch for a summer program called Wildfire for low income middle school girls in Chicago. During the program, the girls would participate in project based learning to the betterment of their own communities. We wrestled with challenges in financial sustainability, institutional education, and disadvantaged populations. I worked with two other women on a rather self-directed team and learned to be comfortable in ambiguity as we spent a long time in the brainstorming stage.
