Why You Should Consider Joining
AOT is at a critical point in its growth where it needs the trusted guidance, expertise and commitment from passionate executives, professionals and volunteers who are passionate about providing young people the skills to thrive in technology and innovation.
An idea that bloomed out of passion on a pile of Starbucks napkins has grown into an award winning organization. At AOT, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to compete fairly for the opportunities of today and tomorrow. When we think about the young people we serve, we know that when given the resources to succeed, they thrive and not only create pathways for themselves, but for others in their communities.
Our hope is that AOT can be a catalyst in introducing students to their potential and the potential they have to change the world with the skills they are acquiring in our programs. This is an opportunity for you to shape the trajectory of a growing nonprofit organization by dedicating your time, talent and treasure to us. We look forward to having you join us.
