I want to thank you and all the Mentors of Project Pipeline. I have the opportunity to be home this week and I heard most of the interaction and it was very professional and productive for my daughter. She was very enthusiastic about the program and she told me, “Mom I’m going to do a  renovation for our home and it’s going to be fun."

More About the Program

The Project Pipeline Southeast regional summer camp is a collaboration of several NOMA chapters, including VANOMA, BmoreNOMA, NOMAtlanta, and SoFloNOMA. The camp provides 6th-12th grade students of color with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of architecture and design. Students that participate in the camps work closely with architects and designers to create the designs they would like to see in their communities. Not only do students create designs, but they are also connected with mentors in the architecture field to help guide their interests. For many students, Project Pipeline is their first introduction to the design world. 

Due to COVID-19 all Project Pipeline summer camps have moved to virtual space to ensure the safety of students and volunteers. These social distancing measures will enable students to interact with us from the comfort of their homes. NOMA’s Southeast Regional Project Pipeline team has created an online 5-day camp (July 19th - 23rd) supported by a curriculum that gives students the skills that they would receive in person.

How We Impact

We guide students through all stages of design using provoking and fun exercises. Students investigate through drawing and model building, analyze through diagramming and research, and engage through interviews and site visits. By the program’s conclusion, students present a fully realized project that addresses an issue in their city. Project Pipeline serves a diverse population of students, all of whom are underrepresented in the design field. Our program better prepares students for college and life beyond. Through Project Pipeline, young people grasp the significance of architecture in their daily lives, as well as the broader cultural, social, and historical implications. They develop skills and tools to contribute to their community critically and constructively. Nationally, Project Pipeline has served more than 10,000 students over the last decade.

I would like to thank you for allowing my son Jonathan to participate in your Project Pipeline. He thoroughly enjoyed it and even though I am in the industry it was good for him to be exposed to the profession outside of my vantage point. Keep up the good work!
