I-Stem is an organization that seeks to use technology to empower people with disabilities in education and employment through a combination of technology-based products and skilling and training opportunities.
As blind technology professionals (software engineers, AI engineers and product managers), i-Stem’s trainers are aware of the best practices to help someone who is blind or visually impaired learn and thrive in the tech industry. I-Stem brings all of this knowledge in award-winning technical training and internship programs that provide hands-on experiential knowledge in diverse areas including software engineering, web development, data science, AI, etc.
I-Stem’s diverse programs allow them to cater to students with a wide range of experience - from those who have absolutely no experience in tech to those CS majors studying artificial intelligence and deep learning. Their programs are between 4 and 12 weeks and are customized based on student’s prior background and goals.
All instruction is led by a blind instructor, and the program includes a combination of live instruction, textual tutorials, office hours, and project work.
So far, nearly 200 blind students have completed i-Stem’s programs, with many pursuing higher education and others finding meaningful job opportunities right after the program.
