About Us


Log Camp is an Oregon 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing technology education, resources, advocacy, and community mobilization to increase economic prosperity for low-income youth and communities of color.

About Log Camp

Log Camp is an Oregon nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization building a technology career pathway preparing low-income youth and youth from communities of color for long-term educational, professional, and entrepreneurial success in the software/IT industries.

Log Camp is working with regional and national partners to close the achievement, opportunity, skills, and income gaps for underrepresented populations in Oregon.

Our goal is to end the cycle of poverty for underrepresented youth by increasing access to technology education, resources, mentoring, and personal skills development for youth of communities of color through a network of after-school enrichment programs and community initiatives.

The Problem


Oregon is a national leader in the software, information technology, and advanced manufacturing industries. In the #siliconforest, there are significant opportunities for investment, jobs, and for white adults who possess the desirable combination of technology job skills, life skills, and a college education.

However, a staggering number of low-income, and minority youth are excluded from these opportunities. These middle and high youth live in diverse communities, and are extremely limited by an alarming lack of access to technology education, technology resources, community awareness, and role models.
