The Minority Technology Foundation (MTF) has a core mission to provide trending vocational, technical and media arts training to minorities and at risk youth. Through partnerships with local community, academia and technology companies, MTF is looking to bridge the gap for minorities who would not otherwise have access to technology training and media arts education. Complementing after school programs, conducting local training workshops and seminars for minorities and improving the quality of minority education rest at the core values of the MTF.
