Designing Your Success Fellowship

The New Sector Designing Your Success Fellowship prepares Fellows working in mission-driven workforce development organizations to integrate innovation and design strategies into their organizations’ programming. Fellows take part in an intensive four-day certification program which helps them to think about how to shift their organizations' programming to better prepare beneficiaries for the future of work. The DYS Fellowship not only empowers our Fellows with the agency to thrive in the future, but also offers organizations the opportunity to bring cutting-edge design-thinking strategies and growth mindset outcomes to the populations they serve.

The Designing Your Success program was created by educators and innovators from Stanford and the Stanford Graduate School of Education with generous funding from Accenture.

Alumni Testimonials

“I used to think that stretching was more uncomfortable than anything else, and now I know that stretching is growth."

– Designing Your Success Fellow,  2019

One of the biggest values of DYS is helping people reframe how they look at their careers and reframe their stories. There are some really valuable tools within the curriculum to empower you to go forward in a clearer way, a more impactful way, but also in a way that gets you closer to what you really want."
