TeenTechSF is an interactive tech community run by and for teens committed to providing equal access to tech opportunities to all youth because diversity fuels innovation. Since launching in 2013, TeenTechSF has connected over 500 students at 32 diverse Bay Area schools with tech leaders from Apple to Zynga and organized events with speakers from Khan Academy, Google, LinkedIn, and Oracle Team USA. Mayor Lee's Office of Innovation and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors presented TTSF with a Certificate of Honor from the City of San Francisco for "outstanding efforts toward engaging San Francisco students in technology" and "contributing to the vitality of San Francisco, the Innovation Capital of the World."
