Comcast NBCUniversal believes greater economic opportunity comes through technology. It requires expanding access and helping young people develop skills that meaningfully expand their economic prospects. This December, Comcast NBCUniversal supported the New York On Tech (NYOT) Demo Day where more than 50 high school students showcased their coding skills and pitched app ideas.
NYOT is a nonprofit organization that brings technology training, education and internships to students in New York City. This year, students enrolled in NYOT’s TECH360 and Tech Flex Leaders program had the opportunity to work in teams to complete web applications for small business clients. The students competed for top prizes in their respective programs.
“NYOT’s Demo Day brings to life the stories and projects of students enrolled in our courses. They have worked extremely hard in their teams the past couple of weeks and this is an opportunity for our community of supporters to celebrate their achievements.” – Jessica Santana, Co-founder of NYOT
