We help foster kids and at-risk youth become self-sufficient
Our mission is to utilize tech-education to redirect
youth facing homelessness, incarceration or similar
Over 80% of homeless people
were formerly youths in foster care
Foster-care youth aged 18-21
"age out" of the system and are essentially abandoned to be on their own in the world without any preparation or guidance
25,000 youths age-out each year
most end up living on the streets or in jail, drug addicted, involved in crime...
Nearly-100% of aged-out foster youth drop out of school, have no parental/adult guidance, no life skills, no qualifications and no means of sustainable living.
Techie Youth is a NY-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity with a mission to fix this situation.
