Hello NetSquared community,

For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, we’d like to share news of a very special event happening this Saturday at the TechSoup Global headquarters.

Inspired by the Social Good Summit and Hackathon beginning the same day in New York City, the Saturday Hack 4 Good will bring together community leaders and developers interested in the potential of building apps 4 youth.

Everything you need to know about the event is below. If you’re in SF, working on tech4youth or social issues, please join us. You can reserve your space to this event by signing-up here.

Event Details:

  • Saturday, September 22, 2012
  • 11:30am-6pm
  • TechSoup Global’s HQ
  • 525 Brannan St., San Francisco CA

Workshop Outputs:

Outputs from this workshop will inform future program activities around the globe, including app development, curation and distribution, hackathons, and grantmaking.

Topics For Discussion:

  • Who are the emerging youth leaders and how can we help amplify their vision within SF and beyond?
  • Where are the demonstration projects others can learn from?
  • What’s missing from the current apps ecosystem that we might be able to address as a community of practice?

Easy Next Steps:

  1. Showcase Projects. We’re looking for showcase projects to present to the group. If you or someone you know is working on apps that help build the capacity of youth populations, please contact bbicket AT techsoupglobal.org.
  2. Need more details? We welcome you to join a community conference call to discuss agenda items Wed 19 Sept @ 12pm pacific (Readytalk: 1866.740.1260 pword: 6339369) and any agenda items you’d like to surface.
  3. If you know anyone who would be interested in participating, we’d be grateful if you could help spread the word!
