Street, sidewalks, and building in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco.


Techtonica started in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the tech industry, which needs to build more diverse technical teams, is causing displacement and increasing income disparity.

We asked, "What if we could help tech companies build much-needed diverse technical teams by having them sponsor training for and hire underrepresented people who most need jobs?"

How it Works


Techtonica conducts free intro workshops with local organizations and labs.

We invite the most resilient, independent, committed, positive, collaborative, curious, calm participants to apply to our full-time program.

Sponsor Companies

Companies that have sponsored at the Advocate Level cover the full-time program participants' pre-placement training and provide mentors.

They have a say in the curriculum and receive inclusion training in preparation for employing their top-rated interviewees at the end of the program.

Full-Time Program

As needed, accepted participants receive living stipends, laptops, and more than 1,000 hours of full-time, project-based, collaborative training.

We place a limited number of graduates with partner companies.
