About the program

We want to ensure every student has a chance to engage in online learning during the shutdown. 

We are making it easy for teachers across Canada to request devices for students who need them -- and for Canadians to donate their extra devices. Since 2015, Future Design School has worked with tens of thousands of educators across North America to support world class learning and supported over 500,000 students.

Online learning shouldn’t be a privilege. We want to ensure all students have opportunities to continue their learning during these unprecedented times. 

To assist with this, we are matching teachers who have students who would benefit from a device with those in the community who have an extra device to provide. 

We have taken this approach for several reasons: 

  • We are protecting student identities by working exclusively with educators and not families directly 
  • We are helping educators prepare devices with virtual volunteers to walk through “wiping” the device

We want everyone to follow public health guidelines and take measures to protect themselves and others:

  • We are encouraging contactless delivery of devices from donors to the educators who request them (as well as from educators to their students) 
  • We are encouraging safe handling protocols for all parties

Our company was founded in the belief that a small group of passionate individuals can make a difference in the world and we are committed to helping make positive change through education.

Our team of educators, entrepreneurs and designers have spent the past several years working inside of classrooms across the globe and we deeply appreciate the tireless efforts of teachers every day -- and especially now, during these tumultuous times. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the amazing educators who are working tirelessly to help their students while dealing with this global crisis themselves. 

 We will all get through this together.
