We are helping young people learn how to merge what they love and are good at with what the world needs and ultimately for what they can be paid for.

During this program, they are taught to Think Big and Be Bold through a proven Vision-Led Innovation method solving a problem they define that enables a future they envision. Solvers have access to networks of subject matter experts including industry, government, and innovation professionals to use as resources. Through Project AccelerUs, solvers take it beyond the challenge and out of the classroom while developing essential mindsets, skillsets, and toolkits for lifelong success.
