High Tech Vocational Instruction
The Problem Worth Solving

Black people comprise only 3% of employees

in the top 75 Silicon Valley tech companies compared to 24% of the total workforce.

The United States Technical Education Center USTEC, a
Silicon Valley based 501c3 Black Owned Tech company, joyously sees the disparity as a problem worth
solving.

We are uniquely qualified to deal with the pipeline problem. To bridge the gap mentioned, USTEC can provide focused experiential learning opportunities, mentors, exposure, and internships.
