Big Thought Learning Pathways Project - 2020 Cohort Interest Form
Big Thought aspires to help youth connect skills developed during out-of-school experiences to the pursuit of a college degree, career certificate, or entrepreneurial venture, and ultimately, a livable wage. This effort will require the community to come together to recognize the skills that youth have, while also advocating for and enabling skills development.  

The Learning Pathways Project is a city-wide effort, powered by the hundreds of partners that make up the Dallas City of Learning. Dallas City of Learning (DCoL) is a public-private, citywide partnership between the City of Dallas and Dallas ISD, to ensure all students have access to high quality out-of -school learning.

As DCoL’s convener, Big Thought aims to equip Dallas’ young people with the skills they need to imagine and create their best lives and world. Leveraging the DCoL ecosystem, The Learning Pathways Project seeks to create a more connected system that simultaneously builds social capital for youth in marginalized communities, while also turning the skills that young people develop out-of-school, into a currency that translates into opportunity.

This year, we will be working with a select cohort of partners who are interested in bringing digital badges and the Learning Pathways Project to their students. In the upcoming cohort, we will be prioritizing partners who work with youth ages 13 and up. We intend on working with organizations that serve younger students in the future. We encourage you to complete the form below regardless of the age you serve so we can stay in touch!
