Mission of Techie Youth

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.



The Techie Youth solution: leveraging education in IT/web-technologies to completely-redirect the roadmap of youth-at-risk towards a path of life success

Long-Term Goal

Curtailing the homeless-problem at its source, before youth-at-risk become homeless

The initiative is simple

We provide free IT education to any adolescent or young-adult in the foster-care system who is motivated to learn a trade.

Technology is the key differentiator

Rather than educating towards a manual-labor trade or college degree, Techie Youth trains and prepares kids to become career-professionals in the computer/IT sector.

The solution is in the tech-sector

IT has immediate tangible job-opportunities, is often merit-based and does not require a degree for hire, and has amongst the highest average earnings of any professional-field, plus to date there has been a constant hiring-need regardless of economy.

Huge rewards for program success

Any of the students who embrace the education could within a very short time be earning much more than what is required to live adequately, certainly enough to avoid homelessness and to be financially-motivated to steer away from risky-influences.

This initiative's long-term effects will demonstrate themselves within just a few years via dramatically-reduced new cases of aged-out youth living on the streets

You have the power to save children's lives - helping will be very rewarding and is easy too...
