SummerQAmp is a nationwide initiative that aims to train a new workforce in high-tech skills and create tech jobs for American youth. Originally developed as a commitment to the Summer Jobs+ Initiative sponsored by the White House, SummerQAmp combines the efforts of Aneesh Chopra, former CTO of the White House, musician Jon Bon Jovi, Steve Martocci, cofounder of GroupMe and Splice, Kevin Haggard, Director of Quality Engineering at RetailMeNot, Inc, and CampInteractive, Inc.
Your contribution will go towards training, mentoring and placing the 2014 class of underserved youth in a 10 week internship at an innovative tech company. Past participating companies include Gilt Groupe, Airbnb, Twitter, GroupMe and Poptip. Over 60% of last year's class were offered jobs at the end of the program. Help us expand in 2014 and bring these amazing opporunities to 50+ studients in 4 cities.
