Jonathan Bryant – Tech Innovator and Black Business Founder

Jonathan Bryant, (right) founder of EDtech tours and WYD-dog walking services inspires students at workshops in Silicon Valley.

EDtech tours, has created a new program to bring high tech teachers to the community.

“I want educators to learn technology together as we of­fer free services to afterschool programs and libraries across the nation,” he said.

Based in the heart of Sili­con Valley in Menlo Park and Palo Alto, Bryant has reached hundreds of students through­out the state. With a degree in Sociology, Social Change and Conflict from Notre Dame de Namur University, Bryant has combined his talents in innova­tion with education.

As a Makory Mentor at Stanford University Gradu­ate School of Education, Bry­ant teaches students the art of profile building and project completion. Recently Bryant taught V., virtual reality, and coding at the Pushtech 2020 coding camp tour.

“Locally, at the Willie Keyes Community Center in West Oakland I taught about 100 students the basics of V.R. and coding,” he said. “It’s al­ways great to see the students eyes light up as they learn new technologies.”

As the Lead Instructor for StreetCode, Bryant designed and implemented curriculum.

“I’ve also served as a tech­nology instructor for Black Girls CODE teaching girls age 7 – 10 how to create a website with HTML and CSS,” he said.

The EdTech tours can be found on Facebook. The do­nation-based program is open for donations: HERE

Next to his love of technol­ogy, Bryant also has a passion for helping dogs and pet par­ents. With his company WYD services, Bryant has created a new Black-owned dog walk­ing service currently offer­ing services in East Palo Alto with plans to expand in 2020 throughout the Peninsula.

“My first dog walking expe­rience was in the 3rd grade,” he said. “I was very shy and was unable to make friends. I com­plained to teachers and to parents so they came up with the idea that I would walk their dog during recess and lunch. Ever since, I had a passion to help dogs and pet parents.”

Bryant says that he hopes to inspire and teach more chil­dren of color about turning their creativity in to a dream job or company. For more information visit: WYD dog walking services
