The goal of All the Colors is to help bridge the race and gender gap in science, technology, manufacturing and other high end careers and workforce opportunities by introducing children and young adults to people of diverse backgrounds who work in a variety of fields.

All the Colors is hosted for youth by youth, and is collaboratively developed by Pasco County Agents for Change and the Foundation for Community Driven Innovation (FCDI) at AMRoC Fab Lab, with support from PLUGHTIZ Productions.
We believe in the truth of the adage that “You can’t be what you can’t see,” especially when it comes to academic and career opportunities for youth of color. Through interviews conducted by youth, the series will strive to tell the stories of different professionals, and to inspire youth through their journeys to becoming the accomplished and passionate individuals who these adults are today.
Each video will include companion resources and educational material and the entire series will be archived by searchable categories that educators and others working with youth can easily access and share.
