Bold IP is a proud sponsor of Team Child and especially the Team Child Hackathan which was a focused effort to use advances in technology to think of new ways to help serve the underprivileged youth of today with a focus on legal challenges/access to justice.
From the website: “TeamChild works with youth, generally between the ages of 12-18, who come from low-income families and are involved, or at risk of involvement, in the juvenile justice system. Some of the youth we serve are facing criminal charges. Some have already been convicted and are on diversion, probation, or parole. Other youth might have contact with juvenile court because of dependency matters (foster care), or because of a Child In Need of Services (CHINS), At Risk Youth (ARY), or truancy petition.”
