Our Programs

Staying true to our mission of protecting people, assets privacy, we're donating up to $100,000 in security cameras and software licenses to AAPI affiliated organizations seeking enhanced protection.

The first 20 cameras have been donated to the Oakland Chamber of Commerce after president Carl Chan was publicly assaulted in Oakland in April.

"Violence and prejudice has absolutely no place in our lives. The Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce is a vital voice in our community, and we will not be intimidated or cower in the face of this unacceptable discrimination. We are grateful to Verkada for stepping up and assisting the Chamber in doing all that we can to protect ourselves as we all work hard to thrive together in our diverse city."

Scholarship Contributions

Verkada is excited to partner with STEP Into a Job! by sponsoring scholarships for unemployed individuals and others who are struggling economically seeking to re-enter the workforce.

STEP into a Job! was established to bridge the opportunity gap amongst individuals who are currently unemployed, on public assistance, recent immigrants, and others who are struggling economically. We do this by providing in-demand healthcare career training programs that include social supportive services, and direct engagement with employers.

The current focus of STEP Into a Job is training individuals for COVID-19 Vaccinator/Medical Assistant positions at community clinics.
