Techie Youth's mission is to create economic opportunities for at-risk youth, teens in foster care and low-income individuals facing challenging life situations, by utilizing technology-skills training to establish financial self-sufficiency and long-term career stability. Our emphasis is on redirecting the life-path of youth and young-adults who are on a track towards homelessness or incarceration.
Our methods provide each participant with opportunity & attention; this is our core ideology that is implemented by every Techie Youth staff member.
Specifically, we provide youth with a highly-tailored accelerated education in computer-technologies, hands-on training and individualized coaching to guide them towards a lucrative technology-driven career, and empower them to become financially self-sustaining career professionals.
We welcome in-kind donations of items that are either useful in the classroom or can be gifted to our students, such as functioning laptops, bicycles, books, electronics, tickets to sporting events or activities, etc. We can arrange local pick-up for items in large-bulk quantities; otherwise, items will need to be delivered or shipped to our classroom (please contact us before sending anything.)
