167 views

Published on

Every year, the Global Shapers Hub of San Francisco tackle one or more projects to make a positive impact on San Francisco. On October 2, 2016, the Hub hosted Project Pitch Day to pitch the projects that are currently underway to our community as a call to action to contribute time, resources, and ideas to the projects.

This year, we are helping Raphael House, who helps at-risk families achieve stable housing and financial independence, to start their Nano Degrees program for training heads of households in skills that can help them get jobs in tech.
