The Future Project
The Future Project exists so that every young person on the planet can build a life and world they love. To bring this vision to life, our passionate team came together, in partnership with some of the most visionary educators, leaders, and young people in America. Together we built an innovative service for schools, a diverse national community, and what has become one of the fastest-growing non-profit (or, as we like to say, for-people) education organizations in the country.
Over the past five years, we invented a new role in schools—a transformational leader and coach called a Dream Director, who works with principals, staff, and, above all, students to dream up and build “Future Projects” that transform school culture while building critical mindsets and skillsets in students. Our Dream Directors now serve more than 35,000 students across a dozen communities from coast to coast.
We have now received demand from thousands of schools across all 50 states—not just for our Dream Director model but for our training, tools, and methodology, as well. So, over the next several years, we will focus on improving our service for schools and building the team and infrastructure needed to reach 1M students by 2020. We just recruited a next-level Chief Operating Officer for The Future Project—and we are looking now for a Deputy COO to help build an organization capable of unleashing the best in its people and serving millions of young people across the country and beyond.
