2018 Summer Queer Youth Tech Camps

All campers will build a video game togeth­er. They’ll apply their tal­ents in writing/​storytelling, artistry and code using a sim­ple text based game devel­op­er tool to cre­ate a visu­al nov­el game entire­ly their own. Maven Sum­mer Tech Camp wel­comes all lev­el of tal­ents. This oppor­tu­ni­ty pro­vides campers the abil­i­ty to meet LGBT+ Tech pro­fes­sion­als who build games, apps and cre­ate animation.

We part­ner with local LGBT+ youth serv­ing orga­ni­za­tions and LGBT+ tech pro­fes­sion­als to pro­vide free 1 – 2 week tech camps for LGBT+ youth between the ages of 14 – 19.

LGBT+ Youth Tech Camps trans­form the tech sec­tor through con­scious­ness rais­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships. Through them, we are able to con­nect LGBT+ non­prof­its with tech indus­try resources and vol­un­teers, which helps to increase the vis­i­bil­i­ty of the LGBT+ com­mu­ni­ty in tech­nol­o­gy. Most impor­tant­ly though, our Youth Tech Camps expose LGBT+ youth to a career pipeline into the tech sector

  • Break­fast, lunch, and TONS of snacks!
  • Tour of tech companies
  • LGBT+ tech pro­fes­sion­als Mentors
  • Train­ing in coding/​programming and game creation
