8 to 80 Creators Zones and our 8 to 80 Zones are a collaboration between Steve Young (#8) and Jerry Rice (#80), providing youth living in under-resourced communities leading industry equipment, mentorship, and the skills to pursue careers in technology, esports, gaming, and mass-media.

These Zones not only allow for artistic expression but also afford students the opportunity to gain training on state-of-the-art equipment and software in the areas of virtual reality, coding, broadcasting, television, radio, graphic design, and game development.
