My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Technovation, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Technovation is a tech education nonprofit that I had the privilege of serving for ~4 years, supporting the development efforts as the organization worked towards transforming the lives of communities in need through providing access to quality education. The programs developed and run by Technovation are geared towards engaging underrepresented groups - specifically girls, minorities and those from low-income backgrounds - in STEM related learning experiences, with the primary goal of ensuring every young person has the opportunity to succeed, and realize their potential. The medium is through STEM focused education, however success is measured in the knowledge that there is an opportunity for each person to pursue any career path that speaks to them - that they have the ability to do so, and the opportunity. Technovation has programs designed to support parent engagement through project-based curriculum, as well as for girls specifically around entrepreneurship and leveraging technology to create meaningful solutions to problems in their own communities. Volunteerism provides an essential component to program success, by offering skills-based mentorship opportunities for interested volunteers to inspire the next generation of innovators and leaders. I can’t recommend this organization and their work more, and wish them continued success in changing the world for the better.
