Recipient of HP Foundation Imagine Grant for 2019!

We are so honored to share that Inclusive World is a Recipient of HP Foundation Imagine Grants Program for 2019. This was announced at the HP Palo Alto Giving Fair held earlier this year in February.

Peer Volunteer Spotlight 

We want to specially recognize the volunteering journey of our long time youth volunteers who are moving on to college. While we wish them the very best for the future, we are so sorry that these dedicated youth will no longer be able to spend their time with us every week.

Skill Development Program Updates

We have adapted our skill development programs to continue to support our program participants remotely and with projects relevant for the current COVID-19 shelter in place mandate. This has been an enriching learning experience for us!
Employment Updates
While some of our employment partnership projects got deferred due to COVID-19 shelter in place, we are excited to share that Inclusive World Software Testing Program Participants had an incredible experience in a software testing project partnership with PatelCo Credit Union!
