The Digital Harbor Foundation is a nationally-recognized maker and technology education nonprofit. In 2013 we transformed a shut-down Rec Center in Baltimore into a vibrant Tech Center. All of our youth programs target traditionally underserved populations and we consistently work to remove any and all barriers possible (ex: all of our youth programs are “pay-what-you-can”). We have grown significantly in the past two years and now serve approximately 2,500 youth grades 1-12 in Baltimore annually through our technology education programs, which include topics such as 3D printing, web development, game design, and electronics.

In 2014, we launched the Digital Harbor Foundation Center of Excellence for Innovation in Technology Education, a revenue-generating division that provides professional development in maker and technology education to other education organizations. We offer educator workshops that include hands-on instruction, best practices, project supports, an online resou...

In 2014, we launched the Digital Harbor Foundation Center of Excellence for Innovation in Technology Education, a revenue-generating division that provides professional development in maker and technology education to other education organizations. We offer educator workshops that include hands-on instruction, best practices, project supports, an online resource and media guide, and an essential technology starter kit.

In addition to our training workshops, we also provide consulting in how to develop makerspaces and tech education programs (everything from technology purchase decisions to staffing to program design) to schools and organizations interested in establishing or further developing makerspaces and tech ed programs.

In June 2015 we launched Rec2Tech, a national initiative for cities around the country to transform underutilized rec centers into tech centers. In the first few weeks since the announcement at the White House Week of Making launch, more than 6 cities from the East Coast to the West Coast have expressed interest in transforming more than 50 rec centers into tech centers.

The Digital Harbor Foundation is committed to developing new models for technology education that solve some of the most pressing issues of our modern economy’s digital divide and insufficient tech talent pipeline.
