the m4c Mission

To empower change-makers to engineer real-world solutions

About US

Makers for Change (M4C) is part of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that trains, teaches, and enables student-Makers to deliver change to their communities with the help of manufacturing processes.

Through our 6-month training program, high school and college students will focus on CAD design, additive manufacturing, and laser cutting to produce items such as toys, animal prosthetics, and robotics kits!
