Out in Tech Youth

 

We’re proud to announce the Out in Tech Youth Mentorship Program!       

No way! For whom? NYC public high school students with a demonstrated interest in tech. 

We'll support youth by:

  • Pairing them 1-1 with tech leaders (apply!)
  • Guiding them through self-designed projects
  • Developing the skills needed for a successful future
  • Creating a fun and inclusive community of techsperts

Ok, got it. Now what? 

Are you interested in tech and a NYC public school student?

We're looking for a dozen techies to inspire the next generation of LGBTQ+ youth as they explore their career interests in tech. You can draw from your own experience as you help build their knowledge, confidence, and excitement.

See mentor FAQ here.

With your help, we'll ensure wide access to the industry we love. 💘📲


Out in Tech Youth is built on three core pillars:

KNOWLEDGE

We connect youth with resources about the tech industry, and its various job functions.  We encourage the next generation of LGBTQ youth to take ownership over their career paths.

EXPOSURE

We maintain that seeing is believing.  Exposure to new careers can change a life’s trajectory. We inspire LGBTQ youth to visualize themselves building the tech companies of the future.

SUPPORT
