Our "Design Thinking" Workshops
Sk8 for Gr8 is a progressive mentoring organisation in South Africa. We work at educating children in design thinking and creative problem solving in order to knit communities together and create positive opportunities for local youth.
We do this through a series of workshops, designed with the children's context and background at our curriculum's centre.
In every workshop we ensure every child is paired with a creative mentor, who takes the kids through our curriculum and the processes of design-thinking and problem solving. Throughout the workshops, our mentors are given the opportunity to create a moodboard for their final child-inspired design, which is then put onto a skateboard deck. This process allows the kids to see the potential of their ideas coming to life, which we engage with.
