The Youngstown Foundation has generously funded the building of additional space within the Oak Hill Collaborative's MakerSpace.

The new room provides an additional 308 square feet of working space as well as expanded electrical service, increased lighting, additional tool storage and
extensive counter space.

This new space will allow for the growth of community oriented technology initiatives including community workspace and facilitation of education in computer literacy, 3-D printing and computer aided drafting.

The Oak Hill Collaborative's mission is "to promote economic development and community revitalization through small business development, neighborhood improvement and beautification, and an innovative MakerSpace, that serves the Oak Hill corridor, the South Side, and the City of Youngstown as a whole."

The Collaborative has become an essential advocate for the area's neighborhood organization and beautification efforts, and since opening its doors in early 2014,

Oak Hill Collaborative's small business incubator has assisted more than 20 small businesses with services including: office space, office equipment and supplies, grant writing, networking, legal assistance, accounting, business planning, marketing and technical assistance.
