SoLa Technology & Entrepreneurship Center

We are bridging the digital divide in South Los Angeles by creating the community's first state-of-the-art Technology and Entrepreneurship Center. This center will offer high quality educational programming alongside leadership and entrepreneurship development in an exciting and safe environment free of charge to the community. 

Our virtual technology classes, SURGE, launched summer 2020, providing over 400 hours of technology education and training to South LA students.  

The SoLa 2021 Technology and Entrepreneurship Summer Camp is hosting a five-week experience with each week having a different theme and objective.

South LA students are bright, driven, and resilient. But what are they up against?

80%

40%

report feeling unsafe

44%

experience teen pregnancy

40%

don't graduate high school

64%

We are determined to disrupt these statistics by providing a safe community space for South LA youth to build viable skills in technology and innovation.
