Design My Place - formerly Home Building Blocks - is a project of discovery and activity.
This introduction to home environment and home interiors allows youth to explore elements and principles of design, create items for their own space or home, and learn about the use of materials, such as fabric, metals, wood, yarns, and more. Youth can select from the many activities and use their creativity to make them their own. Youth will also learn to identify and solve health and safety problems by caring for their space.
Youth may choose to take part in Design My Place for more than a year.
Each year, youth select what they want to learn through activities from the Blocks below:
- Block 1: Designing My Place
- Block 2: Accessorizing My Place
- Block 3: Inspecting My Place
- Block 4: Caring for My Place
