Sponsor - Techtonica.org
Techtonica is a non-profit organization that helps women and non-binary adults with low incomes overcome barriers into tech careers. We offer free training, stipends, laptops, personal mentors, and job placements to our participants.
We started in the Bay Area and are now completely remote, which allows us to support many more people in their tech journey! With this expansion, we need more volunteers to sign up to help our participants during:
- Study groups
- Weekly office hours
- Mentoring (two hours per week)
We also welcome donations at techtonica.org/donate, but our program is mostly funded by companies that sponsor and hire our program participants. If your company might be interested in collaborating with us, please contact us!

I can't thank @crtr0, the @CascadiaJS team, and the conference sponsors enough for the opportunity to attend #cascadiajs! Everyone was so encouraging and welcoming, I'm thrilled to bring back what I learned to @MakeThinkCode & @pnca. pic.twitter.com/5hVyhcmyUL— meganmckissack (@meganmckissack) November 19, 2018
