Youtopia and Public Profit in developing a system that will allow afterschool and summer programs to recognize the advanced skills and valuable experiences that young people gain in their afterschool programs. This recognition can come using digital badges that young people can earn in their programs and share with peers, on college applications, and job resumes.
We created a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise money to develop and pilot a web-based badge system that others can use across California.
