TEAM DHF: DEDICATED TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The team that looks over Digital Harbor Foundation is comprised of people who love what they do and work hard day-in and day-out to make a difference in the lives of the youth we serve. We think hard about education, technology, and innovation, and work even harder to overcome the socio-economic barriers that impede forward progress for too many. We are not perfect but we care about our work and give it everything we have every day.
