Techie Youth's mission is to create economic opportunities for teens in foster care and at-risk youth by utilizing technology-focused career skills training to establish financial self-sufficiency and long-term professional stability. Our emphasis is on redirecting the life-path of youth and young-adults who are on a track towards homelessness or incarceration.
Our programs provide each participant with opportunity & attention; this is our core coaching ideology implemented by each Techie Youth team member.
Each youth participant receives an accelerated education in computer-based career training, tailored to their interests, with individualized coaching. Our goal is to empower them to become financially self-sustaining technology professionals.
