You can help!

Become a Sponsor

As a non-profit, we rely on the tech industry to invest in youth innovators. Sponsors are needed to ensure we can provide this free program to our LGBT+ youth community. With corporate funding it allows us to grow our programs into other cities and provide internships for youth tech leaders.

Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of any non-profit. We seek tech professionals, LGBT+ youth workers, and non-profit partners to build our programs nationally.

Host a Day of Camp

Throughout the year we look to partner with tech driven companies to host our events and camps. If you have space and can provide meals we would love to chat about how to bring a group of our amazing youth to your company to meet tech professionals.
