Digital Action is a non-profit startup empowering the Excelsior neighborhood through skill-building opportunities in the areas of technology, art, design, and innovation.
Today’s digital landscape is an exciting time of movement and possibility. However, all too often, working-class communities of color don’t have access to the resources or technical skills to participate in the field. This is the gap we hope to fill at the Digital Action Hub. We are creating a space for the community to discover and learn, while also enabling a valuable pipeline for those currently disconnected from the wealth of opportunity in San Francisco. Digital Action is building technical abilities and matching them with an encouraging and supportive environment that reflects the values of our community. We are a technology learning center. We are a co-working space. We are a community home. We are a launch pad to inspire future creators, tech entrepreneurs, and innovators.
Over the past two years, the Hub has provided free tutoring for K-College students, free access to computers and printing, low-cost summer camps for Excelsior youth, free and low-cost tech-ready organizing and meeting space for high school and college students, and free after school Art workshops for the whole community.
