TechConnected @ UCLA
Enabling Social Change With Technology
Who We Are
In the Fall 2020, UCLA undergraduates Arjun Verma and Snehin Rajkumar started TechConnected with the goal of enabling social change using technology. Our members aim to use their technical skills to augment the impact that UCLA social change organizations have on underserved communities. We hope to facilitate the transition of services to online platforms by offering free graphic design and website development services to fulfill our partners' needs.
TechConnected aims to drive impactful social change by enabling UCLA organizations with the technology needed to deliver services via a remote platform.
