At NYCpublic.org's Design/HACKATHON you will be able to join forces with other talented folks to create an app (or other tool) designed to help the city’s public school parents:
- LEARN more about the issues that affect their children’s schools
- CONNECT (not so easy in a system that encompasses 1700 schools)
- ORGANIZE + TAKE ACTION on the policies they believe in
Why invest your time with us?
- Everyone benefits from a well-educated populace. Schools are stronger in communities where there’s a high degree of family engagement. In our city, the largest urban district in the country, engagement is complicated by geography, class, and language divisions. On top of that, the current system of school governance makes parents feel disempowered. NYCpublic.org is committed to finding ways for parents to connect, build our expertise, and advocate for the education that our children deserve.
- Yummy food.
- Use your powers for good!
