MIT Design for America’s (DFA) goal is to connect students with real people in order to build and create real solutions to real world problems. DFA fosters that by teaching new skills, providing new opportunities to work on pressing problems, and creating a community of changemakers eager to make an impact. DFA provides the resources and collaborative environment for students to make impactful and successful projects.
