Each year BarnRaise assigns a student ambassador to each team to serve as the ID liaison between design firms, community partners and team members. They do research, invite interviewees and arrange meet-ups prior to BarnRaise.
Let's here what some of them have to say about their role:
I am interested in how our design partner can leverage their user-centered design approaches to this topic.
I want to a part of something that tries to impact the local community in a tangible way. Hopefully we can start to elevate the conversation around mental illness in the Chicagoland area.
I am so glad having a chance to work with both MOMENT and CWHC at the same time. As a female myself, I really think it is valuable to help CWHC enhance their service.
I'm excited to help AARP help the citizens of Chicago while gaining valuable strategy experiences with the accomplished members of Wishful Thinking
