The nonprofit organization OTEC (Oakland Technology & Education Center) has provided after-school programs in the arts and technology. Its primary focus has been to address the needs of multiple underserved communities throughout the bay area, many of them do not have access to healthy food options, the creative art technology programs, literacy programs, and quality STEM programs in their schools.


AfroComicCon has become a springboard for many creative and sought after professions, including writing, graphic art, video/film, gaming, fashion, health, and fitness. With your help, we can continue our work which increases self-esteem and empowerment in its participants.  When youth and adults interact with people who look like them practicing their craft or profession, it opens doors and minds!


Your donation will help fund our three-day AfroComicConvention. We have many workshops and breakout sessions which are lead by industry professionals and aspiring new artists and creators, from professors to entertainers.

Your donation is needed to fund the wildly popular Free Youth Community Day where the kids enjoy free workshops,  dance performances a youth film festival and free food for the kids.


Your contribution will help us get the message across that people of color and women do not need to be limited.  Help them see what the possibilities are so that they can grow their dreams into reality!

The project is expanded to a three-day event for marginalized communities that focuses on arts, literacy, technology, health, and fitness. This platform is a great opportunity to empower people of color who are denied access to these arts/media/tech professions.
