Through dozens of global partnerships, GitHub is committed to investing in communities traditionally underrepresented in tech. As part of that initiative, we’re expanding our partnership with Maven, a national non-profit helping LGBTQ youth build careers in tech, and an organization we’ve worked with since 2013. GitHub is committing $100,000 over the next three years to help Maven reach more youth in the U.S., and collaborating with their team on game-changing conferences, camps, and hackathons.
In their own words, Maven “fosters solutions that empower queer youth to network, organize, and educate for social change”, and they’ve helped hundreds of teens go on to study tech-related fields and build careers as developers. We’ll be supporting their ambitious roadmap to reach more LGBTQ youth in tech hubs and rural areas through curriculum consultation, volunteering, and co-hosting for their three main core programs: Tech Summits, Summer Tech Camps, and the Hack 4 Queer Youth Hackathon.
