Digital Student Immersion Experience

    LexisNexis Risk Solutions, a technology and data analytics company,  has brought together a team of technology focused non-profits – 48in48 and TAG Education Collaborative – to offer a unique opportunity for students in the Atlanta metro area:  help develop your technology skills and build your portfolio, while you make a significant impact on the local community.
    48in48 is a nonprofit organization that works with volunteers to create 48 websites for 48 nonprofit organizations in 48 hours.  This year, TAG-Ed is joining forces and invite you to participate in our Digital Immersion Program, October 6- 8 at Peachtree Center. Students will have the opportunity to work alongside professional teams of developers & designers during the weekend, while developing their technical skills and receiving mentor-ship.
     We are looking for motivated high school students to join 48in48 development teams. Once you have completed the application, we will select and notify program participants.  Good luck and we hope to work with you this coming October!
