Design Voice 3x2 (DV3x2) 2022

The AIA Austin Design Voice Committee began the DV3x2 Internship program in 2009.  DV3x2 is an annual, week-long summer program that pairs professional architects, engineers and designers with high school students (grades 9-12) who are interested in learning more about the construction and design industry. Through three 2-hour sessions, students act as temporary interns: shadowing multiple firms; learning different perspectives; and gaining real-life field experience. Sessions vary from site tours and design charrettes to client meetings or shadowing a professional.

DV 3x2 will run from 7/18/2022 through 7/22/2022 (M-F). Depending on the state of the pandemic and the comfort of the participants we will plan for in-person sessions, but will leave virtual options up to the mentor and student.

DV 3x2 is open to any high school student. If you know a student/s that may be interested in participating, please have them fill out this FORM. If your firm is interested in participating, please fill out this FORM.

Registration is open now and closes at 5:00pm on June 24. Shortly after registration closes, mentor pairs will be announced and a mandatory online intro session will be held on Friday, July 15th. At that session, Students will be able to meet their mentors and can gameplan their internship sessions.

For questions about participating in DV3x2, please contact Desmon or Jason.
