the m4c Mission

About US

Makers for Change (M4C) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving students, teachers, and makerspaces.  

Students start chapters at their schools and learn about making through a social impact lens. Our project library enables students to learn how to build solutions to problems in their communities.

Teachers are supported in developing 3D-printing labs and long-lasting maker culture in their schools. 

 

Makerspaces are provided resources to connect with their communities and bring in youth.

Increasing equitable access to advanced technologies, supporting community engagement in Makerspaces, and inspiring Makers to become change-makers.
