To build a 1,200 sq ft Tool Library in Compton by September 2021 and expand it to an 18,000 sq ft Makerspace by 2025
A place where you could build stuff with professional metal or woodworking equipment, invent/prototype new products with 3-D printers, create multimedia productions, start a catering business, network with folks with similar interest, to ideate, learn, teach each other and create new partnerships and friends.
Imagine if you could borrow tools for home improvement projects or maintenance, maybe borrow tools to build up a business until you had enough money to buy your own tools.
We are building a Makerspace that will fulfill all these needs. As you can see on the map, there are Makerspaces everywhere but inside the circle below – the South LA region. Compton is right in the middle and a perfect location as it’s known as the Hub of Los Angeles. It’s also easily accessible by four freeways. We are calling it
Compton Makers Hub

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony, or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”
- Thurgood Marshall
Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
This is what the Compton Makers Hub is all about! Providing the “Boots”, (Tools, Equipment, Space,) the Mentors, and Coaches from the community, and empowering people to achieve.
These are samples of the types of shops, studios, and collaboration spaces that will be in the Compton Makers Hub
Compton Makers HUB – WHERE PEOPLE MAKE IT!!!
A Place for Makers, Inventors, and Aspiring Entrepreneurs, like these!
