Together, we're overcoming underemployment


(in New York City and the Bay Area)

COOP (koh-op) connects underrepresented college grads to each other—and to meaningful careers in tech, media, and design. In turn, we help local companies find and hire excellent candidates who reflect the diversity of their city. 

We're a nonprofit, and that's our mission.



Find your community.

Join a tight-knit peer cohort and a vibrant alumni community building meaningful careers—together.


Discover your potential.

Develop your strengths, your story, and your digital skillset during 200+ hours of evening workshops.


Launch your career.

Gain industry experience and that first fulltime offer—then “pay it forward” as a future coach, mentor, or boss.


Looking for great hires or interns?

We select energetic, high-potential grads from CUNY and CalState. We prepare them to work effectively in diverse teams, using a diverse set of digital tools. Then we help our grads find the right opportunities—and help partners find (and interview and possibly hire) the right candidates. And that's just the start.
