PepUp Tech Training Programs


PepUp Tech’s programs are driven by industry experts who give their time to teach students the technical and soft skills needed to grow a career in the tech industry. PepUp Tech was founded in 2016 to increase the number of underrepresented people in tech. While the tech industry is one of the fastest growing industries with some of the highest paying salaries, it is also one of the least diverse. By running programs that give bright, motivated, underserved student learners the skills, mentors and confidence needed to begin and grow careers in tech, PepUp Tech aims to increase the number of underrepresented minorities, women and low-income people in tech.

Participants will explore careers and gain insight into the Salesforce ecosystem through the heavily active and engaged Salesforce community.
