PIRS Childcare Innovation Social Hack

February 20, 2019

Pacific Immigrant Resource Society (PIRS), a non-profit organization, is hosting a social non-tech Hackathon to solve the problem of childcare for immigrant women and newcomer families.

Event Info


Here’s how it works: Participants will be presented with problem statements about the needs and challenges in the community. In small teams, you will explore the issues and collectively brainstorm innovative solutions that your team further develops throughout the day.

This is a great chance to meet with immigrant and childcare experts and to connect with other thought leaders in the community.

Snacks and a wonderful lunch will be provided by Tayybeh — the Syrian culinary specialists!
