Note: We've used 99designs before and have launched successful competitions. We'll be very responsive and thorough in our feedback to designs we see. We'll be explicit about what we like, and don't like, in each design.
We are a for-profit education company that offers coaching, mentorship and education activities for 12-18 year-olds.
Our company name is Orenda.
"Orenda" is a Native-American word that roughly translates to mean, "the power of each and every person to affect their own lives and the world around them."
Our current website: http://www.orendaacademy.com (ignore colors and designs, we're open to switching them if we see a good logo)
Our vision: help hundreds of millions of young people become more purposeful and self-directed so that they can positively impact the world.
What we do right now: help 12-18 year-old students find their purpose and passion in life.
How we do it: we have 1-1 in-person mentorship and coaching, we also do small in-person group events (for example, panel discussions, book clubs).
