Urban Tech Center (UTC) is a non-profit organization that aims to deliver technology education through mentor-based training to low-income people of all ages. Though we focus on reaching minorities, we’ve discovered that there is a wealth of creativity from ALL individuals and our programs & community based workshops can encourage collaborative learning in ways unmatched .


We want to ensure the opportunity is there for those who are ready to engage and learn and for the last 2-years, UTC has provided an array of programs to K-12 students as well as Adults. Our Spring and Summer Code Camp served over 70 low-income students and to add to a remarkable 2017, UTC reached some 200+ students in our After School programs thanks to our partnerships with area School Districts. 


Our minority instructors, who are experts in their field, come from an array of technology backgrounds and are committed to sharing their love and knowledge with the community. You can assure our mentor based instruction is coming from qualified individuals who have and currently work in the field of Engineering and/or Computer Science and other Technology emphasized areas.

This fundraising initiative will, if our goal is met, bring FREE Computer Programming, Design and Technology based workshops and programs to the communities all across the United States beginning with the SF Bay Area, Los Angeles, Chicago, South Bend Metroplex, Sacramento, Dallas, Atlanta and other underserved communities based on identified need. 


We set up shop in a tech company or community center near you and deliver excellent programs that develop long lasting skills. Your contribution help us cover our Instructor fee's, facility fee's, equipment and student body tuition costs. Our goal is to have atleast 10-programs launched by September 2018 and over 20 by March of 2019. Help us help our community! *Please view the video attached to this fundraiser.

Our programs range from beginner to advanced and can lead to long lasting employment, business ownership  and/or spark interest in the under populated field of technology and computer programming.
