The Coach Foundation and Pensole Lewis College have announced a free six-week masterclass for aspiring designers from underserved communities. "The class is open to Black and Brown students, 18 years and older, globally," the partnership writes.
"The Coach Dream It Real x PLC Masterclass [is] a new, virtual six-week program for aspiring accessories and footwear designers that will remove socioeconomic barriers for traditionally underserved communities and communities of color by offering them a unique course of study within Coach's New York City design studio.
"The program will feature up to 10 aspiring designers, whose tuition will be covered by the Coach Foundation, who will participate in a six-week, accelerated online accessories and footwear design masterclass from March 6 – April 14, with final presentations and in-person mentoring at Coach's headquarters in New York City on April 21.
"Over the course of the six weeks, students will be exposed to a variety of personal and professional development lessons to help them prepare for a career in design. Students will receive weekly instruction, but the program will function more like a design studio. This format allows students to experience what it is like working at a brand while developing their time management, professionalism, and leadership skills."
Following the class, students will receive a Coach Certificate of Completion issued by Pensole Lewis College. Registration is now open here, with a February 19th deadline.
