Join us on August 12 to celebrate over 40 young people who have completed our 6-week immersive bootcamp in Oakland. It's time to party and honor all their hard work!
Our big tent will gather young people, families, friends, and mentors in attendance, plus volunteers and allies from organizations including Google, Weebly, Go Daddy!, VSCO, Facebook, Slack, Adobe, Get Clef, Pandora, and so many others!Speakers include:
Food by Blue Heron Catering, DJ, and good folks will all be on hand.
100% of profits form the evening will go to support youth stipends at future program, making it easy for them to afford to particpate, thanks to generous underwriting from Slack.
If you're a person who cares about helping to create work opportunities for young people of color in Oakland, or wants to keep Oakland a diverse center of innovation as more tech rolls in, this is an event you definitely want to attend.
Early bird tickets are $11; get them here through 8/7; get regular tickets here as well.
