Uber Partners With Bay Area Tech Training Programs

Uber has partnered with several organizations in San Francisco to help increase access to high-quality jobs.

The ride-sharing giant–announced in a blog post–its plans to commit $100,000 to nonprofits <dev/Mission>, Code Tenderloin, and Opportunities for All in an effort to train the next generation of technologists.

In addition to the donation, the company will provide office space and offer volunteer time for employees to work with students on coding and interview skills.

“The donations build on long-standing relationships we’ve established with each of these groups that date back to their founding days,” the company said.

<dev/Mission> will use the grant to add 30 students and 10 new internships to the program. Code Tenderloin will add over 50 students to its Job Readiness Class and Coding program, which teaches students how to build a resume and prepares them to interview.

Opportunities for All, an initiative led by San Francisco Mayor London Breed to expand access to youth employment, will bring additional interns into their program.
