Core Features

Make a difference

We working to ensure better outcomes for children in orphanages and shelters across the world.

How your donate is invested

Well-designed plans and supports

Our State Approved platform strategy helped Hayward Unified School District administrators transform their vision, schools and students by implementing an innovative Cisco Network Academy curriculum that simulates the inherent performance motivators in real-world economic systems to teach students things they otherwise struggle to learn in real life.

Growth and development

Today, Citylab provides Pre-Apprenticeship and On-the-Job Training in Technical Network Career Fields, for our students seeking careers or education in computer network sciences; and operates within MakerSpaces in US Cities.

Transition and growing independence

CityLab helps form a community where prospects are paired with backers to form individual social-financial agreements that are “designed to unlock potential and create a long-term sense of shared purpose.”

Our Family Support Workers care for families at a time of great need. $10 will help families get the support they so desperately need.

We teach students how to enable clients to import, clean, and analyze data from databases, emails, videos, survey responses, and more. These data analyses provide mobile, desktop and real-time business intelligence so decision makers can act on insights to improve their organization.

Giving incarcerated fathers a vision that they have a unique and irreplaceable role in the life of their child along with increased confidence and changes in attitude and skills is a powerful motivator for successful reentry into a community.

CityLab courses help students propel themselves out of old habits of mind, out of the sub-standard economies of poverty.

The Summer Dreams Report will be presented in a format built natively in Hadoop and Spark for scale, using Oracle Big Data Preparation Cloud Service provides a highly intuitive and interactive way for analysts to prepare unstructured, semi-structured and structured data for downstream processing.

Creating Hope

one simple vision: to resurrect the local skilled technical workers that once were in every city and town.
