About Drafting Dreams
Drafting Dreams has been successful in educating over 200 students, grades Kindergarten through 12th, on principles of architecture. The purpose of this work is to inspire the next generation of architects, as well as to increase women and minority participation in the profession of architecture.
The demographic breakdown of the profession of architecture is currently:
- 1% African American
- 2% Hispanic
- 5% Asian/Pacific Islander
- 2% Mixed Ethnic Background
- 18% Women
Their belief is that these statistics can change by educating students K-12 on the profession of architecture, thus increasing the amount of students who are aware of the profession as a viable career choice.
The ArcEd Luncheon is the second part of their work. Teaching architecture to students K-12 sparks interest in students to attend college to study architecture. Funding their interests allows them to attend and graduate from an architectural degree-granting program. Please support these efforts!
