Mission Statement

Our Mission

Aland You is a nonprofit on a mission to engage and educate marginalized communities about artificial intelligence and new technologies. Our goal is to expand the economic power of these communities with the knowledge and tools needed to advance in education, jobs and careers.

We offer Web3 Digital Literacy Badge Program curriculum, bilingual online resources, and other useful content to guide people through the rapid technological advancements that impact their lives and livelihoods. Our aim is to share knowledge about technology that can help create a more equitable technology landscape in the advent of Web3.

Roughly 54% of consumers* have never heard of “Web 3.0”
While 17% of men have heard of this new internet revolution termed Web 3.0, only 8% of women can say the same.*

What We Do

We demystify new technologies by helping people understand how they engage every day, address fears, and educate them about how new technologies are evolving. We prepare our communities by educating all about everything new technologies touches, including education, criminal justice, health, housing, labor, medicine, art, music and finances.
