Our mission is to help unemployed young adults from low-income communities launch their careers in the technology industry.
How It Works
We make longterm investments in our target communities by building innovative, sustainable workspaces to run our free education programs.
Our Technology Bootcamp is for unemployed young adults. Students take crash courses in Design, Coding and Marketing before picking a track to specialize in.
In addition to learning, our Bootcamp Students volunteer their time, teaching free, after-school coding lessons to local primary & secondary students.

Our Donors believe everyone should have access to high quality technology education & employment opportunities. Let’s close the access gap together.
Mentors Change Lives.
When our Bootcamp students pick their track for specialization, they’re matched with industry professionals for one on one Mentorship.
Becoming a Mentor at Uncommon has been an extraordinary experience. It’s been a privilege to watch Walter grow from novice to world-class designer.

For nonprofits, sustainability is everything. As a team of entrepreneurs & out-of-the-box thinkers, we have challenged ourselves to come up with creative ways to make impact sustainably and at scale.
We design, develop and market web products for clients all over the world and use the profits to help fund our education mission.
The Uncommon team was professional, responsive and went above and beyond to deliver.

We brand our Innovation Hubs for corporate partners, boosting their brand awareness, customer loyalty & employee engagement.
Computers Change Lives
Each Uncommon computer is used to train one unemployed young adult for the technology workforce, and to teach coding to 50 school children throughout the year.
For the rest of the year, our goal is to raise $100,000 to buy and ship 200 laptops to Zimbabwe for our 2024 participants.
A gift of any size goes a very long way. Thank you!
