About


What is SPEC?
SPEC is an open learning organization that empowers individuals to be catalysts for positive change. We provide mentoring, training, internships, and host events to help individuals from underrepresented backgrounds learn the essential skills required to build sustainable careers and make a positive impact in their communities.

What do we do?
SPEC expands the reach of environmental and social justice initiatives through the use of open-source and sustainable technologies. Some of our initiatives include:
  • Community Innovation and Technology Internship for a Sustainable and Equitable Nation (CITISEN)
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programming and outreach
  • Micro-credentials
What does our CITISEN mentoring and training program look like?
  • Paid internship program designed to create and sustain long term careers
  • Programs focused on professional development and STEAM training (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)
  • Training our CITISENs to utilize technology for community building.
What is DEI programming?
  • Host summits, roundtables, and other events
  • Provide workshops and offer training services
  • Curriculums integrated with DEI and STEAM competencies
What are micro-credentials?
  • Short, competency-based recognitions that allow learners to demonstrate mastery in a particular area
  • Built by a diverse community continuously integrating learner feedback
  • Self-paced accessible modular coursework that stacks related competencies
Are we a 501(c)(3)? 
Not yet! But you can still make a tax deductible donations to us here on Open Collective thanks to our fiscal host the Open Collective Foundation 501(c)(3). We like this platform because it aligns with our values of openness and sustainability.

How can you get involved?
