Description
The Foundation’s goal is to provide open source information tools and services without charge for use by youth and community activists seeking to be change agents within poor and otherwise marginalized communities. The Foundation supports these activities through open source software development, hosting online services and training youth, teachers, non-profit organizations and other community activists in the use of these tools. Our first product is Local Ground - a web-based data collection, mapping and information visualization tool that empowers youth to use data in support of various civic initiatives. Local Ground has previously been used to involve youth the planning of a public park, ground-truth civic data about food access, and document air quality issues across the BART transportation system.
