Design Your Neighborhood

What is Design Your Neighborhood?

Design Your Neighborhood (DYN) is a paid internship program for high school students in the Nashville area that teaches them about improving their community through design.  During a DYN internship, interns explore the community through field trips, and will work on a series of community design projects with their peers and highly trained design professionals. The experience leaves interns feeling more aware of the world around them, and motivated to make a change.  

To learn more about a DYN experience, please watch the Design Your Neighborhood documentary, and see the images below. For examples of the types of projects you will be working on, see our Project Gallery.
