We partner with tech companies to offer free tech training and job placement to local women and non-binary femme adults in need. Our students have been selected—we just need you!
What We Do
We're like a coding bootcamp, but free, and we cover more than just web development. Our full-time program is longer than most at six months, it's followed by job placement, and it's specifically for local women and non-binary femme adults in need. Companies partner with us to provide mentoring and to formulate student criteria and curriculum. (See what else sets us apart in our FAQs.)
The tech industry in the Bay Area is causing displacement and increasing income disparity. The industry also needs to build more diverse technical teams.
We asked, "What if we could help tech companies build much-needed diverse technical teams by having them sponsor the training for underrepresented, underprivileged locals who need jobs the most?"
How it Works
Techtonica conducts free intro workshops with local organizations and labs.
We invite the best students to apply for the full-time program.
Partner companies sponsor the training and provide mentors.
They have a say in the curriculum and receive inclusion training in preparation for employing one of their top-rated students at the end of the program.
The sponsorship is tax-deductible.
Accepted students receive living stipends, laptops, childcare if needed, and six months of full-time training that includes lectures, projects, open-source contributions, and experienced guidance.
Upon completion of the program, students are placed with partner companies.
