Jason Serafica

Instructional Associate, General Assembly

San Francisco

Jason Serafica (they/them) is a full-stack software engineer, a community organizer, a native San Franciscan who grew up in the Excelsior District, and an unapologetic advocate for under-represented communities in Tech. They have helped over 4,600 Bay Area residents learn web development fundamentals at weekly in-person workshops and study groups in San Francisco’s Mission and SOMA Districts and on online Slack channels and Facebook groups for people of marginalized backgrounds trying to break into tech.

At General Assembly’s San Francisco campus, Jason helps several dozen students perform at their best every day as an Instructional Associate for the 12-week Software Engineering Immersive program. Jason wants every student at General Assembly to be empowered to take charge of their learning and to kickstart their careers with confidence. Jason strives to have a positive impact on every student they work with.

Jason cares deeply about leveraging tech to take on social problems and promote diversity, inclusion, and equity. You can regularly find them mentoring outside of class at meet-ups like Nodeschool or contributing to open-source projects at Code For San Francisco. They have spoken at Built By Girls’ first conference on the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of trying to break into tech. They are also one of the first ambassadors for Out In Tech for the Bay Area and helps organize events for LGBT+ techies to gather and empower each other. They hope to continue the themes of mentorship and advocacy throughout their career.
