What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?


DIGITIZE provides high school students with digital tools they can use for the rest of their lives and a platform to creatively and collaboratively engage in multimedia storytelling. We are youth-driven and community-oriented. We recognize place-based experiences and digital literacy as both crucial skills for the future. By building leadership skills and cross-cultural awareness, our students begin early adulthood confident and well-equipped to amplify their voices.

Our resource center includes a directory; a local community events calendar; ENGAGE, a cultural opportunities hub; and Voices, a curated, own-voices story feed. Users can search for numerous culturally-tailored resources close to them. Our directory is a culmination of three years of research and growth, culminating in a database of over 2,400 entries that span 230+ cultural communities. Our calendar, ENGAGE, and Voices are extensions of our directory, capturing events, opportunities, and stories month-to-month. Our NCRC is vital to DIGITIZE, our youth programming that helps youth and young adults explore their cultural identity and express themselves through digital storytelling.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
