Educational Resources

We are invested in the professional development of our members so we organize workshops, hackathons, and summits year-round. Members can learn a new development framework or innovative strategies for fundraising through social media!

capacity building services

Our team ensures that members operate their projects effectively and thrive in the fast-changing world. We provide our members with a nationwide network of volunteers, grant directories, fundraising tools, prototyping labs, and much more! 

Fiscal sponsorship

No 501(c)(3)? No problem, we follow the best practices of the National Network of Fiscal Sponsors. Members who join our incubator can solicit public donations and apply for foundation grants. We handle all the administrative paperwork with IRS compliance, including disclosures, so members can focus on their programs.

Liberate.

We liberate the disadvantaged from poverty and injustice through educational programs, mentorship, and technical solutions. Our members work alongside city government officials to address the most critical social issues - we think globally, and act locally. As members, you can help the homeless in your city, ensure the right for free speech in your state, and even fight for immigrants coming from abroad.

Educate.

Our members have the opportunity to mentor at a hackathon or teach a workshop at a high school in their local community. We work with academic institutions and nationally-recognized nonprofits to create civic enrichment centers and then educate the general public.  

 

Protect.

Climate change is real and it is our duty to protect the environment through technology. Our members are actively applying for research funding, working closely with the city officials in their region, and are prototyping their projects in our nationwide network of enrichment facilities. Our members can also receive access to the state-of-the-art equipment provided by our corporate sponsors and government partners. It's time to innovate without red-tape!

Our programs and services are supported through donations made by our monthly contributors from the general public. These folks envision a sustainable future in which our members are liberating the disadvantaged, educating the broader community, and protecting the environment.
