Access Humboldt's GenZD projects are supported through the federal Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), and ZeroDivide, a non-profit whose mission is to transform underserved communities through the strategic use of technology. Check out some of our latest projects:
The Real Life / Research Lab is a youth-driven project designed to investigate and interpret on-the-ground use of technology in multiple communities in Humboldt County, CA. Using tools such as wi-fi enabled video cameras, creative mapping software, and broadband internet, teen researchers critically assess how their peers and families access information.

KRECR Documentary Community Action Project
In Fall 2012, Access Humboldt worked with Klamath River Early College of the Redwoods to create a school-based documentary filmmaking course. Middle and high school worked in teams to write and produce their own documentaries, which were presented at a community screening in Crescent City. Watch out our final projects below:
- oohl we-son' (The Indian Way) Teens working to preserve Yurok language and culture.
- Arts and Music at KRECR Students and teachers discuss the importance of music and the visual arts.
Orick School Digital Storytelling Project
Access Humboldt partnered with HSU's Redwood Writing Project to teach 1st-8th grade students how to make their own digital stories. Students produced short videos about local outdoor activities, including rafting on Redwood Creek, sailing on Stone Lagoon, fishing, and playing at the Smith River.
