Austin, Texas, United States expand job description ↓


Our Organization

The Problem: “If you can’t see it, you can’t be it.” So many students lack access and to some of our most in-demand careers and technical industries. Further, the absence of opportunity to explore these areas through exposure to industry professionals, technical skills development and at-bats to practically apply these skills have led to the dearth of diverse technical talent that we see today.
