The HandsOn Tech Atlanta team just got back from Tech Camp at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California with other HandsOn Tech VISTAs from around the country. This trip was an amazing opportunity to learn more about technology and nonprofits. Throughout the week we learned more about the many tools and services Google offers for nonprofit organizations. In addition, we learned about various topics and tools including Salesforce, LinkedIn, data visualization, skills-based volunteer recruitment, working with nonprofits, and so much more. It was also great to meet all the HandsOn Tech VISTAs from other cities to share ideas and collaborate.
One of the highlights of the week was seeing a presentation by nonprofit social media guru Beth Kanter. Her presentation on measuring social media was inspiring and informative.
We appreciate all the work Google put into this year’s Tech Camp. All the trainings and new ideas have energized the team. We are excited to put the knowledge we gained through Tech Camp into action this year through technology trainings and deep dives.
