The Peoples  Foundation team has partnered with, aligned to, and works with some renowned national organizations all in an effort to be the catalyst for change in our community.  Our goal is to inspire youth from under-represented communities to be involved in technology and STEM pathways.  The future success of our young generation will depend on them being a full participating member of the Innovation Economy.  We've partnered with, and work with organizations such as Thurgood Marshall College Fund / OFC,  Freedom Writers, CODE2040, Young Innovators Fair (YIF), in order to bring the full immersion and access opportunities technology offers to Lompoc Valley youth in innovative and strategic ways.  Also see the stories, success, mission and reach of these organizations below.

We, partner, to provide an opportunity to youth in our community. The Make School summer coding academy will give youth from Lompoc Valley an opportunity to learn to code in leading coding languages, for 8 weeks in the summer, at the many Make School Campuses across the nation. This Silicon Valley Y-incubator is changing the face of computer science education.  We believe that all youth should have the chance and experience Make School is offering.   Peoples Foundation will sponsor, a youth from our community to attend this amazing opportunity.  

Peoples Foundation is proud to be working hard for our future...ALL children. In a community it's vital to know that: "It'll take a village to raise a child."  It's why our programs are being brought together for all children of Lompoc, Valley.  Our goal is simple...change and enhance the future of the children in our community.  We've developed programs that bridge the GAP...the GAP between what's being provided by local educators and what's not provided due to resource and other constraints.  Our educational community support programs...will be based on 21st Century education, technology concepts, and application.  Because we know it will take every community member and organization - to play a part in making a difference in our children's lives and educational pathways. Peoples Foundation is proud to be doing our part and offering the support our community and children need through our...S.T.E.A.Mafter school and summer academy programs, In-Class Mentoring Sessions, Instill Hope Day events, Tech-Based Tours/Immersion days.
