Mission Statement

Street Tech is committed to bridging the "digital divide" by offering an advanced technology and life-skills training program to at-risk and disadvantaged adults. In a highly professional and nurturing environment, Street Tech trains and certifies participants in state-of-the-art computer skills, then guides graduates into desirable technology careers. Our goal is to develop a "technology academy" model that can be replicated locally and nationally. We believe that computer technology jobs can provide a path to self-improvement and career stability. Street Tech offers young people -- regardless of community, economic, or academic background -- the chance to participate in the Digital Revolution.

Description

Street Tech is a nonprofit organization offering low cost computer training, certification, and job placement assistance for selected students (ages 18 and up) from disadvantaged communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Street Tech students participate in an intensive 6-month technical and life skills training program, for 20 hours per week, after which they are transitioned into entry-level computer jobs.
