The Future Project
At The Future Project, we're fighting to revolutionize the education system, transforming schools into places of inspiration, passion, and action. We do this by introducing a new character into high schools, a "Dream Director," who works hand-in-hand with the principal, teachers and community to help inspire students to believe in themselves and to start taking action towards their dreams. The Future Project, in its third year, is already impacting 25,000 students in six cities across the country, with millions of dollars in funding raised. Among The Future Project's Board Members and National Advisors are Timothy Shriver, Dan Pink, Bill Drayton, Sonal Shah, and Tony Wagner. We find that within one year, a Dream Director can make great strides in helping students develop the confidence, 21st century skills, and passion they need to be thrive, both in the classroom... and beyond. One of our partner principals has stated that in twenty years of education, he has never seen anything, "so resourceful or so magical."
