Uber Forges Partnerships with SF Organizations to Help Expand Access to High Quality Job Opportunities
Below is an article originally written by Alex Randolph at PowerToFly Partner Uber, and published on January 23, 2019. Go to Uber's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.
Uber is committed to improving access to high quality jobs for residents in our home town of San Francisco. To help make this a reality, we've partnered with organizations across the city over the last couple of years to help train the next generation of technology leaders; and today, we're excited to announce that we're committing more than $300,000 in 2019 to three of these groups. Beyond the financial commitment, we're donating office space for these organizations to use in meetups and training sessions; and our employees are volunteering their time to train students on a range of skills – from coding to interviewing and more.
As part of the commitment, we're donating $100,000 each to DevMission, Code Tenderloin and Opportunities for All. The donations build on long-standing relationships we've established with each of these groups that date back to their founding days.
Launched in 2017, DevMission helps prepare young adults ages 16-24 for careers in technology by creating apprenticeship programs with local tech companies. Since it launched, we've worked with them to host weekly "Open Labs", where our engineers mentor young adults for two hours every Tuesday, answering questions about coding and software development. The labs started at Uber's offices before moving to DevMission's headquarters in Summer 2017. We've also hosted three corporate visits from DevMission students, where our engineers and lawyers have answered questions about working in tech and provided guidance on how to break into the field. We're excited that they'll be able to use the grant to add an additional 30 students to the program, as well as an additional 10 new internships, and purchase equipment for its students to use.
Code Tenderloin offers training and guidance to help its enrollees remove financial, legal, and logistical barriers that stand in the way of long-term job opportunities. We started working with Code Tenderloin in Summer 2018 by providing space and resources for Code Ramp Bootcamp, which is a 6-week program for students to learn basic front-end web development. The group meets five days a week for three hours a night at Uber's headquarters. With this grant, Code Tenderloin will add more than 50 students to its Job Readiness Class and Coding program, which teaches students how to build a resume and prepares them to interview.
Opportunities for All is a program led by Mayor London Breed to fight systemic inequality by connecting high school students to paid internships, employment, training, and educational opportunities across multiple industries and sectors. As part of the initiative, we're providing city youth with real job opportunities and a platform for enhancing job preparedness skills through workforce training programs and mentorship in the tech industry. The grants will be used to bring additional interns into the program – which costs between $1,800 – 2,400 per youth – and for operating costs.
These partnerships build on work that we've done to improve access to food and healthcare for residents in need across the Bay Area. For example, we've given ride credits to groups like Family House and San Francisco AIDS Foundation to help ease the burden of transit on their members. Family House, a recipient of Uber's 2017 Community Credits program, used the credits to book rides for the 80 families that stay with them, many of whom can't take public transportation to go between appointments; while San Francisco AIDS Foundation enrolled in Uber Health and continue to use their credits as a way to get their clients to and from medical and housing appointments.

Forward is the new approach to primary care, offering customized plans to help you control the future of your health. Today, we sit down with Dr. Brittaney Belyeu to hear her take on tech-enabled, member-centered healthcare.
Dr. Brittaney Belyeu — our newest physician at our Los Angeles location at The Americana in Glendale — received her medical degree from UCLA and completed residency training in Internal Medicine, with an emphasis on Primary Care, at the University of Washington. She values building a strong therapeutic alliance with members and using that as a foundation to help members move toward optimizing their health.
What first drew you to practice medicine?
As a child, I watched my mother suffer from widespread pain and fatigue as she searched for answers from her doctors for what was going on. She also dealt with the stress of work and caring for our family. Seeing her deal with these trials, I began to recognize the importance of a physician in improving a person's quality of life, which is ultimately connected to their ability to care for themself and their family.
What areas of interest do you have as a physician?
I am interested in prevention and optimization of chronic disease. My other primary interest is how technology and information systems can help a member better understand their health.
What do you value most in your relationships with members?
Being a primary care physician often means being invited into areas of a person's life that make them feel worried and vulnerable. I value the trust that is built in establishing a therapeutic relationship with members.
What is your experience with the current healthcare industry? Where would you most like to see improvements or changes?
There are inefficiencies in processes and transmission of information in the current healthcare industry that can lead to patient-provider miscommunication, unnecessary care, and unnecessary cost. I would like to see those inefficiencies addressed, which technology and optimization of information systems can help to facilitate. Additionally, it is important to train a workforce that is passionate about providing efficient but equitable care, particularly within the primary care field.
Why did you decide to join Forward?
I joined Forward because it is a new model of care that strives to address the inefficiencies that I mentioned above, while also placing high value on the member experience. This gives me the opportunity to be a part of positive change toward a better and equitable healthcare system.
What are a few fun facts about you that our members might not know?
I love food! If I could be dropped anywhere on Earth right now, it would be into La Boqueria in Barcelona.
