Real-World projects

Acclerating internship readiness

The Project Commons is a creative hub for work-based projects with a mission to accelerate youth work-readiness through innovative, safe learning spaces and Real World Learning.

The Project Commons is an impact-driven accelerator platform for high school students to gain essential skills with immersive projects where they work alongside industry professionals.  The Commons leverages innovative and collaborative youth-centered spaces to inspire and activate youth actualization, agency and voice.  

Our successful pilot is now paving the way for more "Commons" pop-ups, taking the model to opportunity schools, businesses and opportunity deserts across the region, going  where the students are and bringing RWL to where it’s needed most.  

TPC is sponsored and funded by the DeBruce Foundation.
