We Inspire Students to Live With Passion and Purpose
Introducing a Simple Solution for a Complex Problem
Watch as our CEO and co-founder, Andrew Mangino, discusses The Future Project’s human solution to helping students to dream up and design big ideas for the future, discover that limits are but illusions, and collaboratively turn their dreams into reality.
The Elements Of Our Method
The Dream Director
Dream Directors are embedded in schools full-time to unleash the passion and purpose of everyone within them. They’re new kinds of leaders, whose design is grounded entirely in breakthrough research and emerging evidence.
To multiply their impact, Dream Directors build Dream Teams of coaches, students, and teachers, and charge them with transforming their schools from the inside out. We believe young people must be leading school change.
Dream Directors challenge students to create ambitious projects like clubs, campaigns, companies, and so much more. Research suggests there may be no more transformative experience for a student.
Whole School Change
As students lead their peers, Dream Directors partner with principals to reimagine spaces, rethink policies, and remove any barrier in the way of inspiration. Within months, the school's new culture inspires everyone within it.

Our Method is 100% Evidence-Based
Everything we do at The Future Project is grounded in cutting-edge (and some ancient!) research and our own experimentation. We've been influenced by disciplines as wide-ranging as behavorial and developmental psychology, sociology, history, neuroscience, SEL, positive youth development, and so much more.
