Social entrepreneur Oscar Menjivar

Annalee Shelton

Oscar Menjivar is the founder of UrbanTxt, a nonprofit teaching coding and other tech skills to inner city LA teens. Their results are incredible: 100% of participants have gone on to four year universities, and GPA jumps of a full point and more are going off like popcorn. With hundreds of students applying for just 30 spaces, the organization is exploding. This summer, students are creating apps to combat local community issues.
