Our method is based on experience, inspiration, and solutions. We bring some of the brightest volunteers to apply their everyday skills to develop new technology and build solutions. Our volunteers engage with local nonprofits to fully understand the issue and its challenges. Once equipped with valuable information, the volunteers put their skills to action and develop solutions during the hackathon.
