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

Program 1

Mouse

Our programs help sites build an environment for learners to explore, deepen, and practice creative and technical identities over time. Educators from schools, community centers, and afterschool providers partner with Mouse to adopt, then adapt our programs to suit their goals.

Our sites start with foundations from web literacy to fixer skills, and incorporate opportunities to level-up in new content areas like electronics and game design along the way.

Our program model accelerates positive youth development outcomes, builds practical expertise, and helps educators learn alongside their students.
