Central to the Everett Program are our student projects, and central to those projects is the imperative to find community organizations, nonprofits, and NGOs who are already on the ground and working in their area of interest. Everett students join NGOs across the globe to help shape their information infrastructure and train local groups to maintain and expand their use of technological tools. From human rights organizations in Namibia to coffee farm collectives in Central America, Everett students partner with their hosts to build the NGOs’ technological capacity to promote communication, support their mission, and raise awareness of their causes.
Below you will find a list of orgs that we or our students have partnered with to carry out amazing projects.
