Who we are

DUSTY (Digital Underground Storytelling for Youth) is a set of after-school programs operating in both West and East Oakland that focus on STEM literacy, academic achievement, and cultural enrichment programs for youth. Founded in 2001 by Michael James, Director of the Oakland Technology and Education Center and a Professor from the University of California, Berkeley, and, DUSTY has successfully served over 250 children and youth annually.

It is the only in-school and after-school program in the Bay Area that links the creation of electronic media, such as digital stories, movies, and electronic/digital music, and STEM, with academic achievement in schools and classrooms.
