or years, our communities were excluded from the economic and technological advancements that other California communities experienced. But we were determined to provide our youth with the best possible opportunities to develop their talents, knowledge, and interests.

That’s why we established Digital NEST, a vibrant hub for technology and empowerment that equips our young people with the skills they need to succeed in the workforce. Through Digital NEST, we’re creating a network of connections and opportunities that uplifts our entire community.
