We're into week three of The Great Tech Community Challenge and so far it's been incredibly inspiring to see so many in our community coming together to support this effort. Most of all, we've loved hearing the stories of why people are raising money to help us deepen our tech programs for youth of color.
One especially moving story comes from Jose Cortez, who started a fundraising team called Los Bots. Jose explains how his passion for this cause is rooted in his own personal experiences:
In 11th grade I was introduced to the idea of a career in technology by a computer teacher named Ms. Neider. She changed my course in life.
People like Jose are the ones fueling The Great Tech Community Challenge - those who believe in young people of color, and who know that they have unlimited potential. We're so grateful to have Jose on our team, and encourage you to support his efforts here!
