Student Makers Turn Vision to Reality - Digital Promise Global

Student Makers Turn Vision to Reality

June 30, 2017 | By

Three high school juniors in the Learning Studio at Leadership Public Schools, Hayward (LPS Hayward) are launching Temple, an apparel brand with a mission to support design, manufacturing, and marketing opportunities for young immigrants in the United States.

The students, Nuh, Karlo, and Vinh, developed the social mission of their brand in response to the Global Goals, Local Solutions Design Challenge prompt, which asks Learning Studio students to use one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to address an issue in their local community. “We based it off of the 8th goal, ‘decent work and economic growth,’” Karlo explained. “We wanted to help immigrants because we all came from immigrant families and want to give them opportunities like our families and be able to express themselves. We also wanted to do better for our community.”
