Last year on October 17th, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced the launch of Opportunities for All, a program to address economic inequality by ensuring that all young people can be a part of San Francisco’s thriving economy.
This week Mission Bit was one of the many organizations present at the Opportunity for All: Advancing the Dream Career Fair event at the War Memorial Building in San Francisco. Over 500 students from all backgrounds attended the event. The ages ranged from middle school students to adults, 13 to 24-years old.
Mission Bit provided additional information to attendees on their programming, in hopes to inspire more individuals to consider registering for Spring courses and become a part of Mission Bit’s growing number of students. Mission Bit strives to eliminate the tech divide by offering free coding courses.
Mission Bit‘s goal this Summer is to provide 100 students with paid internships in the tech industry, where students learn firsthand from others in the field.
