Community Initiative

Focus:

“Underrepresented Teens & Young Women of Color in Cyber Space”

Goal:

To prepare underrepresented and young women of color, ages 13-18, for a professional future.  This is a cross mentoring project where SAN members work with young women to discover how technology and media can positively enable professional outcomes.  We provide a caring and supportive environment where the young ladies develop projects and see them to completion.
