Our Vision

We will apply sociocultural activism, support, and practice to the issue of the underrepresentation of young disadvantaged socioeconomic groups in technology professions regardless of color, gender, sexual orientation, and ableism challenges that result in professional barriers and a lack of needed familial, social, or institutional support.

Initiatives

As an organization we are dedicated to supporting and empowering women in tech as well as youth who are aging out of foster care. Through grants, scholarships, and mentorship programs, The OPUS Foundation aims to provide access to educational opportunities, employment resources, and a strong network of support for its recipients.

Foster Support

"23,000 United States teenagers become emancipated from, or "age out" of, the foster care system every year. Many enter adulthood without a safety net and find themselves with nowhere to go and few resources for achieving success in their adult lives."

 

Our goal is to develop programs and resources to support these individuals through mentoring, career building, college selection, application processing, and scholarships. 

 

We offer individual mentoring and life skills services including:

 

Financial Planning and Living Expenses - opening a bank account, different account fees, how to create a budget, the importance of credit scores, and paying taxes.

Seminars - "Looking for a Technical Career"


Careers -  search process: resume building, job applications, interviews. 

 

Secondary Education Support - study skills and tutoring.

 

Post Secondary Education - vocational tech education application process. College applications and plan of study.


Housing - leases, home security.
 

 


 

Women In Tech

"While a total of 27% of computing roles are held by women, only 3% and 2% are held by Black and Hispanic women, respectively."
