For 48 hours over a weekend, Assistant Professor Barry volunteered her design skills through the Detroit AIGA's Impact48. Barry was the Design Lead for a team of five talented graphic designers who donated their skills to the Downtown Youth Boxing Gym in Detroit, MI.
The non-profit is remarkable, with 100% of its attendees graduating from high school in a neighborhood where the average graduation rate hovers near 15-20%. Students from elementary to high school age receive athletic training, tutoring, a meal, transportation and a support system all for free. The non-profit was struggling to connect with an individual donor base, so Barry and her team developed the 100% Campaign to gain millennial constituents. Hopefully the campaign will be rolling out soon, and be sure to "Champion a Child" if you can.
