WHO WE ARE
MakeMeAProdigy (MMAP) is a Newark tech community non-profit. MMAP is a publicly funded 509(a)(2) non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of the community through programs, training courses and collaboration with the City of Newark to solve local challenges.
Underserved communities face many challenges integrating technology in their daily lives and community. We hope to create change by focusing our efforts around technology initiatives and programs that address these inequalities. By creating and supporting programs like City Plug we remain focused on these goals.
Make Me A Prodigy will provide the foundation for a growing technology ecosystem in Newark. We will excite a new generation of thinkers and challenge our local talent to solve problems in their own backyard.
Servicing the residents of Newark is our number one goal and we will do our best to effect their lives in a positive way. Our goal is to be the ultimate source of Technology information and to be a strong support for city departments and businesses.
MMAP is funded through public support and is overseen by a Board of Trustees consisting of business owners, technology professionals and other representatives of non-profit organizations, as well as municipal officials and staff.
