For Students Who Want to Shape the World

Explore Your Future in Tech with Break Through Tech Miami.

Did you know that only 18% of women earn computer science bachelor’s degrees in the United States? Despite the high job demand, competitive pay, and projected growth, computer science remains a male-dominated field in the U.S. (

Beyond gender, we recognize that additional barriers exist for specific groups, including Black, Latina, Indigenous, low-income, first-generation college students, and those with marginalized gender identities. Break Through Tech aims to amplify the voices of these groups and increase their representation within the tech community.

Can you envision yourself as a Computer Programmer? Software Engineer? Web Designer? Video Game Developer? Data Scientist? These are just a few of the countless opportunities available for underrepresented communities. As computing intersects with all fields—arts, life sciences, business, and more—the possibilities are endless. We are here to help you explore and follow the path less traveled.

Your future in tech starts here. Your chance to make a difference begins today.

Join us at Break Through Tech Miami, where we will help you break down barriers, open doors, and reshape the industry.
