NEST Vision

About Us

Latinx youth deserve the same access to resources to nurture their talents, wisdom, and passions as their white, middle- and upper-class peers. Yet, they continue to live in under-resourced communities which means they are less likely to attend and graduate from college, acquire career-building skills or have robust networks to help them secure well-paying jobs.

Digital NEST creates sustainable and scalable technology learning centers for Latinx youth in order to provide the skills, network, and resources to foster economic equality. We achieve this by teaching young people the technical and soft skills needed to be competitive in our digital world, providing mentors, and broadening networks in order to gain sustainable employment.
