By 2020, one million technology jobs will go unfilled, yet fewer than 10% of NYC schools offer computer science education. New York on Tech works to create pathways towards degrees and careers in technology for low-income, underserved students in New York City by providing after-school computer science classes taught by software engineers who volunteer from major tech firms. Students who excel are eligible for paid summer internships at companies that include: AOL, Deutsche Bank, BNY Mellon, Warby Parker, and Google.
- 100% of NYOT graduates in 2016 received admission into a four year college/university degree program.
