Ready, Set, Connect! 2018 Graduation Ceremony
May 31, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us to celebrate the 2017-18 ReadySet, Connect! cohort, their accomplishments, and contributions this year. Over the past eight months, participants have helped to bridge the digital literacy divide in Oakland by sharing their tech skills with library patrons and working on projects that affect the communities they serve. Participants attended weekly professional development trainings at the Main Library, accessed networking & mentoring opportunities from technology company staff, and were exposed to diverse pathways to tech. Let’s celebrate the culmination of this exciting program and hear from participants about their work in Oakland’s communities over the past year.
Ready, Set, Connect!, a professional development program designed to help youth from Alameda County discover the professional skills necessary for technology-focused careers while building digital capacity in their communities. Participants receive a refurbished MacBook at midpoint and monetary bonus for completing the program. Ready, Set, Connect! is a partnership program of Community Tech Network and the Oakland Public Library.
