Digital Harbor

When the South Baltimore Rec Center was slated to close down in 2012, a group of educators and technologists came together united by a vision of transforming the Rec Center into a Tech Center. In January 2013, three months after the Rec Center's doors closed, the Digital Harbor Foundation re-opened the space as the DHF Tech Center, a youth-centered makerspace in Baltimore's Inner Harbor (http://onforb.es/167EvOu).

Our first summer of programs, MakerCamp 2013, served more than 90 unique students who put in a total of over 5,600 hours of making! More than 80% of the youth received full or partial scholarships and everyone benefited from breakfast and lunch served for free at the Tech Center. This was only possible due to ongoing support from DHF's Board of Trustees, generous donations from foundations and individuals, numerous volunteers, Baltimore City Public Schools, corporate supporters (such as Elevated Elements, Cynergy, and others), and a generous grant from the Maker Education Initiative (http://makered.org).

Now we need your help! Please support youth in need of scholarships to attend next year's MakerCamp at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center. Contribute by funding a youth scholarship for a day, a week, or whole summer of programs for a youth at MakerCamp (http://digitalharbor.org/makercamp)!
