The BOOM is an economic and social empowerment initiative for teens struggling with violence, dangerous drugs, and economic hardship. We're on a mission to propel teens in-crisis into prosperous futures as inventors, engineers, and entrepreneurs. Our goal is to make entrepreneurship more inclusive. We emphasize women and people of color.

We mentor youths in the assembly and marketing of an electronic product: boomboxes. This sparks enthusiasm and establishes foundational skills. We're developing low-cost methods to enable small-scale production. Ultimately we'll guide our apprentices to prototype their own products. When you build something powerful and beautiful, you feel powerful and beautiful.
