As a society we have the ability to create the future we want and tackle wicked problems through design. Good design is something that is so vital to our everyday wellbeing as humans, communities should have the control to alter and design their environments to be places that are nurturing and culturally relevant to the people who live in them. This starts with giving tools to people within the community to become the designers themselves. The design empowerment workshop is setup to invite youth to take part and learn about design while providing an opportunity to engage and share ideas about what type of development and design they wish to see for the future of South Central Phoenix.
