What is a Kenzie Community?

As the saying goes, it’s not always what you know. Sometimes, it’s who you know.

Kenzie Academy works to fill a major gap in the tech industry. For people outside of big tech hubs like San Francisco, it can feel lonely trying to learn the ins and outs to break into the industry. We’re not meant to find our calling and grow our careers alone.

Each Kenzie Community is a gathering space for tech professionals, employers, and learners to network, learn, and grow together. In each Kenzie Community city:

  • Learners, grads, and professionals can network at locally targeted, virtual events.
  • Employers can connect with a pipeline of diverse tech talent.
  • Learners in Kenzie’s Online programs can meet and engage with other members of the Kenzie Family.

Currently, we have Meetup communities in the following cities/regions:

Think Kenzie should build a community in your city? Contact us and let us know! We’ll keep your area in mind as we continue to create Kenzie tech hubs across the United States.

The Kenzie Academy community, or the Kenzie Fam as it’s affectionately known, is not only home to our learners, alumni, and subject matter experts, it’s also home to the employer partners in our professional network.

Online events, speakers, & career tips.

We regularly host guest speakers, open house events, and info sessions for anyone who wants to join us. Learners are inspired by our AMA (Ask Me Anything) events with some of the biggest leaders in the industry. Recently, we hosted AOL Founder Steve Case and 2020 U.S. Presidential Candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang (he’s also on the Kenzie Advisory Board) just to name a few. Our facilitators hold info sessions to demonstrate tech skills like creative problem-solving and career skills like how to assemble a professional portfolio. Our Admissions team hosts our open house events to introduce the Kenzie culture and explain how to enroll in our programs. No matter which event you choose to attend, we hope you’ll walk away feeling inspired to learn a new skill, or inspired to apply some sound advice in your job search.

Career opportunities for job seekers & employers.

At Kenzie, we work with employer partners to help you in your job search. Our Learner Services and Placement teams will coach you through the tech job interview process and make sure your resume is in tip-top shape.

If you’re a hiring manager, we’re excited to welcome you! Now, more than ever, we must work toward eliminating the gaps that exist in our organizations. We advocate for inclusion, equity, and belonging in the tech industry by opening career opportunities to those who have traditionally been overlooked. It’s why Kenzie Academy was founded, and it’s why we’re coaching the next generation of tech leaders. We invite you to accept our call to diversify your candidate pool with our talented graduates.

“Kenzie has been a second home to me, and unlike my previous school experience, I’m not ready to get away for the summer. I’m ready to put together my notebook and keep going.”
