Preparing Youth for Their Future
MSS collaborated with a sports-based youth development organization to envision, design, and create a program curriculum to expand their current facility, incorporating racial equity and social justice. The Learning Center will fulfill the organization’s mission for closing gaps and opening doors for young men of color by furthering the organization’s community outreach and by providing robust STEM programming. The space is designed around a series of “academies” focusing on the game of golf as the platform for learning. Students have space to prepare award winning science projects, space to develop their journalism talents, and space to create, tinker, and grow. The expansion provides individuals access to tools, technologies, and mentors to develop 21st century skill sets for college and career readiness.
