What is

TBC Together

TBC Together is our stipend-backed open-source initiative that allows our community members to get hands-on experience by helping to code, design, write, and project managers community-driven projects. This provides every member of any skill level the opportunity to cultivate marketable skills to land their next job or promotion.

The Problem

Bootcamp grads and self-taught technologists struggle with landing their first job in technology. While many roles are labeled as entry-level, companies are wary of hiring folks who lack experience working with a team or working on live products. Historically open-source projects have been the way for individuals to gain this experience to wow interviewers.

The open-source community has not been welcoming to underrepresented individuals. In Github's 2017 open-source survey 50% of the 5,500 respondents reported witnessing toxic interactions in this space. 18% of those who reported witnessing toxic interactions experienced it first hand. Toxic environments mixed with the fact that underserved communities have additional responsibilities (such as being caregivers or needed to work multiple jobs) many do not have the privilege of working without pay.

Often marginalized individuals are overlooked for growth opportunities at work are left to expand their skills on their own.
