OUR MISSION is to strengthen our communities through building strong authentic connections & collaborations for the benefit of youth & young adults. We want them to feel empowered and prepared to take action once they are introduced to the non-technical career path that they are interested in pursuing.
ABOUT TECH FIT CREATIVE
TECH FIT CREATIVE is creating bonds and opportunities for all walks of life in the Bay Area through through outreach, discovery, networking, mentorship, company visits, partnerships, and educational methods for preparation for black and brown underserved communities. Our primary focus is serving youth and young adults ranging between the age of 15-25.
The idea of TECH FIT CREATIVE was established in 2017 when Clinay Cameron decided that enough was enough with the limited opportunities impoverished youth of color have been getting when several corporate and industry level jobs (that don't require coding experience) are being created almost daily in their backyards.
She realized that if anything at all, youth should be presented this information to have some sort of knowledge or awareness of what's out there, and not be discouraged on exploring career paths outside of what's considered the norm for their demographic or upbringing.
The first project that is being launched is called "Thrive Like Me". Thrive Like Me will give black and brown youth in Oakland an opportunity to connect with people of color who are working in corporate level industries and foster mentoring relationships.
This organization strives to give more opportunities to black and brown youth from Oakland to be introduced to people who look like them in careers beyond the engineering pipeline.
