WE ARE

A collaboration between organizations in Coahoma County and students from Boston-area colleges. As part of a social venture class called Affordable Design and Entrepreneurship, students from Babson, Olin, and Wellesley college have partnered with community leaders and educational organizations in Coahoma County, Mississippi to co-design and create an educational space for youth with an emphasis in technology, arts, and entrepreneurship.

WE VALUE

Access, oppurtunity, empowerment, and agency. As a space that encourages self-directed learning and and self-efficacy, Shifting Rhythms  aims to create experiences in which students take control of their own learning pathways. Operating at the intersection of technology, entrepreneurship, and arts drives us to foster creativity alongside developing twenty-first century skills, which allow youth to explore their interests and creative potential.

OUR PROCESS

We work to design and develop with Coahoma County youth, not for them. We do frequent codesign activities and feedback sessions to keep the project on track.

The project is community-owned and driven by local passion, youth volunteers, and community leaders. We emphasize the roles of our partners, and seek to promote ownership and agency for youth.
