Design for Civic Change is a professional development program for government workers interested in implementing community-engaged design within their work.

This program is for people working within city, state, regional, or tribal governments in the United States, who work directly with marginalized communities in a planning, direct service, community engagement, or design role. To support the successful implementation of the skills and knowledge learned during the program, applicants are asked to apply as teams of two to three individuals working in the same agency or on the same initiative. Throughout the program, these teams will workshop a specific project and create an implementation plan. During this program, participants will learn about effective community engagement from CUP and other leaders practicing community-engaged design in the field, learn principles of anti-oppressive facilitation, get peer feedback and one-on-one coaching as you implement your community engaged design project, and build a community of practice to support ongoing implementation and development of this work in the field.
