Join us on Sunday, April 17th, from 3:30pm-5pm, to support Frederick Douglass, North Atlanta and Mt. Vernon students as they present innovative business solutions to community issues. A panel of judges and potential investors will be in attendance.
After a weekend of "hacking" issues with Atlanta's top leaders, these students will pitch ideas for digital literacy access, food access, sex trafficking, lack of career paths in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) career fields, and ways to inspire healthy lifestyles.
This year students in re:imagine/ATL's multimedia program produced original public service announcements on the topics listed above. Now they will be working with Atlanta Tech Village entrepreneurs and the local business community to develop community-based solutions to each of these issues addressed in their videos.
Special Thanks to our Event Sponsor, Atlanta Tech Village!

re:imagine/ATL uses a project-based educational approach that combines film and music, storytelling, and entrepreneurship as a means of activating youth to positively impact their community. We believe that under this creative vision the next generation can come together to form a single vibrant voice that will change the world.
