Design Your Neighborhood (DYN) is a comprehensive youth curriculum with the goal of investing the next generation of informed citizens in how the world is built around them. DYN has partnered with Metro Nashville Public Schools and Vanderbilt University to integrate DYN curriculum into 7th and 8th grade classes. We need architects, planners, artists, engineers, sustainability professionals, city officials, and journalism professionals to support student projects and talk about their careers.
