FREE TECH PROGRAMS FOR OAKLAND TEENS & YOUNG ADULTS
Go to OAKLANDSUMMER to a find a free program to learn skills and design your future career or company.
Oakland is a dynamic, diverse and ever-evolving city, with a strong history of activism and protest (it's where the Black Panther Movement began, for one) and a love of technology as a social justice tool.
Indeed, just miles away from Silicon Valley, Oakland is where PROTEST meets PRO-TECH (yes we just came up with that!) and it is showing the world how the growth of technology could support and strengthen communities (which does not always seem to be Silicon Valley's priority...).
Our new film Code Oakland shows how skilled social entrepreneurs are teaching youth of color to become not only future tech leaders but also world-changers-- so they can transform the use of technology with the "code" of Oakland. Many local groups offer incredible, free programs for kids and teens to teach them tech and coding skills here (there are lots of other awesome and free programs for youth to learn other career skills too) and Downtown TAY is compiling a list of many that are coming up NOW and over the summer!
The time is NOW for Oakland's next generation to change the face & future of technology.
TELL LOCAL YOUTH: YOU ARE THE FUTURE. And share these opportunities with them....ASAP!
