Meet Your Teachers

Partnership with Startups for All

In an effort to make our program more inclusive and impactful for our students and greater community, for 2023 we are excited to partner with Startups for All, integrating real-life products from underrepresented startups and founders into our curriculum.

Guest Teachers

Everybody deserves accessible, quality education

Especially for our queer and BIPOC communities, breaking into and excelling in the creative industry shouldn’t be gated by expensive bootcamp courses or inaccessible professional organizations. The passion to create and conviction to thrive should be the only requirement to finding success in the UX industry.

We created this organization as our form of joy, liberation, and celebration of our community.

Come join our next cohort. We’re excited to have you!

What's different about this program?

Design is collaborative, communal, and community-oriented.

One of the core aspects of our UX bootcamp programming includes collaboration and being partnered up with one other student throughout the duration of the course. This has benefitted our students greatly in the past and we try our best to pair students together the best we can each cohort. Expect to leave our UX bootcamp better prepared with insights, lifelong collaborators, and friends!
