Our group formed July 22, 2016.  We started teaching kids project management skills 5 months later  (Dec. 3, 2016).  To date we’ve completed 3 classes and 5 kids’ projects.  Our work is Pro Bono, however if you’d like to contribute to the kids program you can do so through our partner the MADE (Museum of  Art and  Digital Education) by clicking here.   Although our expenses are very low, the MADE allows us to have our classes at their facilities and covers our expenses which for now are very low.  The more contributions we receive the bigger project we can do.

To learn more about our programs, see our Portfolio / Summary of Classes & Projects section and see our calendar below for information regarding upcoming classes, projects and events.

Our Calendar of Events is at the bottom of this page.

 

Help support our first real project

A Go Fund Me Project for Asante Africa Foundation

  • To help see how things that can seem so technical be relatable;
