Digital NEST provides underserved Latinx youth with the skills, resources, and network to build confidence and launch successful careers.
Digital NEST gives Latinx youth in Watsonville free access to technology, workforce training, and paid internships so they can build a career that will transform their lives. This year, we’re expanding our bizzNEST program to provide up to 40 young adults — 18-24 years old — with real-world, paid experience in web and graphic design, web development, and/or video production internships.
With your support, bizzNEST staff and experienced professionals will mentor these budding tech professionals as they work with local organizations to produce video content, build and code websites and web apps, create visually engaging graphic design products, and meet deadlines. During the yearlong internship, they’ll work with a client to achieve a common goal, build a professional network and portfolio, and gain the necessary job experience to help launch them into successful futures.
I’ve always been interested in video production but it wasn’t until I joined Digital NEST and bizzNEST that I saw the possibilities. Digital NEST impacted my career immensely. With their guidance I built a solid resume, portfolio, and network and I’m now a communication specialist in multimedia.
