How to enter

Our two-day event is designed to spark engagement between Los Angeles' tech sector and those who work each day to improve the lives of youth and caregivers in Los Angeles' foster care system.

We have developed five tech challenges that can have an immediate impact on improving the lives of youth and families -- plus we will offer 'policy hacks' for strategic problem-solving.

Our shared goal is to develop tools and solutions to support families to help young people heal, develop and thrive.
