Mission Economic Development Agency
MEDA creates opportunity for habitually under resourced families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. MEDA is also committed to maintaining the cultural identity and enhancing the resources of the Mission District, as we help every student achieve and every family succeed as the lead agency of the Mission Promise Neighborhood.
Masa partners with Mexican and Latino children, youth, and families in the South Bronx to develop strong learners and leaders who fully participate in and contribute to the larger community. We envision a community that is civically engaged, empowered, and educated.
Dev/mission is the best practice in technology training program that teaches untapped young adults ages 16-24, technology skills in hardware, coding and critical skills. They will close that tech gap by connecting tech companies; their employees and participants to corporate site visits, a mentorship model and internship/apprenticeship opportunities.

Banco de Alimentos Associacao Civil
We look for food where it is left and take it where it lacks
This basic premise gives meaning to the existence of the NGO Banco de Alimentos, created in 1998, in São Paulo, by the pioneering initiative of economist Luciana Quintão. Inspired by the idea of reducing food waste in industry and commerce, and distributing the surplus to social institutions, the NGO conducts an Urban Harvest that makes it possible to supplement quality food for more than 20 thousand people, every day.
