The nonprofit Makers for Change (M4C) serves students and teachers by increasing equitable access to advanced technologies, supporting community engagement in makerspaces, and inspiring makers to become changemakers. Students are empowered to start chapters at their schools and learn about making through a social impact lens.
The Makers for Change library enables students to learn how to build solutions to problems in their communities. Teachers are supported in developing 3D-printing labs and long-lasting maker culture in their schools. Makerspaces are provided resources to connect with their communities and bring in youth. Makers for Change projects include animal prosthetics, 3D-printed toys, braille/tactile models, and laser-cut items. Applications to start a chapter are processed once a month.
