Future Project

The Future Project

Kanya Balakrishna and Andrew Mangino, founders

What if every high school student had her own personal dream director? The Future Project believes you can transform any school in the U.S. by installing official Dream Directors as full-time support for students. Dream Directors are full of passion and enthusiasm and obsessed with helping students see how to make their biggest dreams in life come true.They work to change the school fromthe inside out with the help of coaches and teachers. Today, the Future Project works with 10,000 students in high schools in New York City, New Haven, Newark and Washington, DC. Their goal is to have a Dream Director in every high school in the U.S. by the year 2020.

Andrew’s fave quote: “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what brings you alive. The world needs more of what brings you alive.”
