Why Partner with Us
For us, by us
Geeking Out Kids of Color was founded by and for Black, Indigenous, and people of color. We connect the history to the present day to see how we can use technology in dismantling systems of oppression.
We understand the importance of collaboration with a diverse range of sectors to address social change through our work with young people, and work together to bring justice to struggling communities.
We provide a response to a gap identified in STEM programming for youth of color that centers positive identity development with curricula that builds technology skills through a lens of equity by incorporating critical race theory pedagogy.
Elevate youth voices
We offer opportunities for youth to explore and learn from people of color working at tech companies. GOKiC strive to create experiences for youth where they can gain confidence, practice leadership, and have a space for healing and connection
“Thanks again for the opportunity to share my journey with the students. I really enjoyed the event and look forward to supporting in the future.”
