Hive NYC Learning Network
Mozilla Hive NYC Learning Network (Hive NYC) is a city-wide learning laboratory for educators, technologists, and mentors to design innovative connected educational experiences for youth.
Hive NYC’s membership includes over 80 non-profit organizations such as museums, libraries, code clubs, advocacy groups, higher education institutions, afterschool programs and tech start-ups. Together, they create an ecosystem of equitable and accessible education opportunities for young people to explore their interests and develop skills that prepare them for success in the digital information age.

The Hive Digital Media Learning Fund was seeded in 2010 by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and The New York Community Trust as a collaborative of grantmaking organizations that promote adolescent learning through digital media. In addition to MacArthur and The Trust, current donors include the Altman Foundation; Renate, Hans, and Maria Hofmann Trust; Mozilla Foundation; Stavros Niarchos Foundation; and David Rockefeller Fund.
The Fund’s grants support innovative projects that explore how digital media technologies are changing the way youth learn, facilitate the interaction among Hive NYC members, and spread learning innovations to a wide audience. Selected projects demonstrate an entrepreneurial approach to addressing the needs and interests of youth in which learning with digital media is active and participatory; youth are motivated because they pursue subjects that are personally meaningful; and technology connects communities of learners with shared interests.
