What are the Snap Academies?

The Snap Academies are nine-week, summer educational programs for community college students hosted by Snap Inc., the makers of Snapchat.

They are ambitious programs designed to provide meaningful career opportunities to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and other groups who have been historically disconnected from equal opportunity in the tech sector such as women, community college students, and youth who may have experienced homelessness, foster care, or the juvenile justice system. Through these programs, we strive to prepare our young scholars for careers that may have been otherwise inaccessible to them.

If accepted, you’ll get the opportunity to:

  • Learn from team members at Snap Inc.
  • Connect with Snap mentors
  • Develop a portfolio and network
  • Refine your professional skills
  • Experience nine weeks of learning customized Snap curriculum to further develop your skills for the future
