Be part of the team that designs, plans, and manages events that tie the NEST to the wider community. Learn how to think critically, solve problems, and manage a project from beginning to end alongside a supportive team. These skills are transferable for careers like project manager, event coordinator, or a promoter. Past events coordinated by this team include holiday parties, game days, fashion shows, tech conference, music/art festivals and a Film Festival. What will our next event be? It’s up to you!

Our community needs innovative-minded individuals like you (ages 14 - 24 years old) to help them during the COVID-19 crisis. All work will be done remotely. We will activate our minds to tackle problems that our community is struggling with

You can gain volunteer hours for your high school and gain workforce experience that will show the positive contribution you've made for the community during this pandemic.

Some projects we started are:

1. Educational videos scaled to the late elementary, middle and high school levels teaching students skills like time management to help them master independent, virtual learning

2. A COVID-19 Santa Cruz County website where members of the community and youth can easily access reasources available along with useful information on how to stay safe while practicing social distancing.

3. Managing social media to market a fundraiser to help undocumented families

4. Bring awareness farmworkers as essential workers
