New York On Tech (NYOT) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization on a mission to prepare the next generation of technology leaders emerging from New York City (NYC). We are committed to developing, mentoring and providing support to underrepresented students interested in the field of technology. We believe that empowering students from underserved backgrounds creates a more equitable system that leads to meaningful participation and diversity in the tech industry.
The Tech Flex Leaders Program is a selective year-long immersive experience for juniors and seniors enrolled in an NYC high school. By participating in weekly workshops, presentations, company visits and case studies, students learn about the endless academic and career opportunities available to them in the technology industry. Tech Flex Leaders are also paired with mentors operating in high-tech industries who serve as positive role models and career advocates!
By giving, you are enabling NYOT to:
- Purchase laptops for Tech Flex Leaders
- Acquire space for our workshops
- Identify new mentors and volunteers
- Increase our level of instruction
- Scale our impact across NYC high schools
This year we are partnering with nine high schools in NYC and are increasing our impact from last year. Help us create pathways to technology... because technologists can come from anywhere!
