Jade takes care of her mother and grandmother and sends money back to relatives in Jamaica. Tech Powered by Daughters can lift up an entire family.

Poverty in New York City continues to have a highly disproportionate impact on people of color in many neighborhoods. Nearly half (46%) of New Yorkers lack the postsecondary training and credentials to fill high-quality, high-demand “middle skills” jobs in tech. Your donation will give our students the opportunity to provide for their families and set examples for their children, inspire their brothers and sisters, do right by their partners, and give back to their elders.
Please donate today, join the team, and spread the word!
