CHANGING THE WORLD, ONE COMMUNITY AT A TIME.

Woz ED Community Outreach programs are made possible by our believers – people who understand that opportunity to learn leads to opporunity. People who know the tech economy is leaving the rest of the U.S. economy in the dust. People who want to prepare young people in the communities that are dearest to them for tech economy jobs. Movers and shakers proving that economic development happens in some unklikely places when K-12 embraces K-Employment. Our believers give more than their time and money, they give hope by shrinking the digital divide.

Woz ED community Outreach programs are made possible by people who have teamed up with Woz to change the world. One community at a time.
