America On Tech Announces Its Instagram Lives Series #AOTLIVE Featuring Tech Founders and Professionals
A few weeks ago we released some information to you all about our transition to working in a remote learning environment. Since then, we’ve been developing more resources to keep our students engaged in robust technology career development and exposure. Today we are proud to announce the launch of America On Tech's #AOTLive series - a free Instagram Live chat series featuring technology founders and professionals who will provide insight into trending technology topics.
On Tuesday, April 7, 2020 we learned about the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development’s (DYCD) decision around canceling its 2020 Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP), as well as its Ladders for Leaders program. The news devastated our organization and its supporters, as we could not fathom the effect this would have on the young people of New York City who gain access to critical employment opportunities through this resource.
Since 2014, America On Tech (AOT) has had the distinct pleasure of bringing tuition free technology courses to the young people of New York and Los Angeles. These courses provide critical and in-demand technology skills and professional development sessions to 16-24 year old students of color, who are from low to moderate income communities. Not only do our students obtain high quality technology training, they also have opportunities to apply for our paid summer internship program, jobs in our employer partner network and receive exclusive opportunities as part of our alumni engagement portfolio. AOT students are amazing, talented and represent the future of innovation in our country and we cannot express how thankful we are to work with them everyday.
