Mission

Mission of Techie Youth

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.

Feeding HUNDREDS of KIDS in Manila's POOREST area! Techie Youth helping Tondo Happy Land BRGY105

πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ Feeding HUNDREDS of KIDS in Manila's POOREST area! Techie Youth helping Tondo Happy Land BRGY105

Tondo HappyLand in Manila (Barangay 105) is among the most-impoverished regions of the Philippines. Kids and adults in this region commonly eat Pagpag, discarded food scavenged from the garbage that is then battered and fried; hunger and malnutrition is a major problem in Happy Land (yes, that really is the official nickname of the BRGY 105 region of Tondo!) Techie Youth has sponsored this initiative to provide food to hundreds of kids living there, purchased directly from local vendors. This was an initial pilot program to validate how much impact we can make; we are now exploring projects that provide long-term results - you can support this project at https://www.TechieYouth.org/help
Special HUGE thank you to @KryptoTrekker for making this happen!

🀩 Meet the Students of Techie Youth, hear their stories: homeless, foster care, LGBTQ, incarceration

Techie Youth https://www.TechieYouth.org) helps at-risk youth and teens in foster care learn professional IT computer career skills so they can be financially self-sufficient. Many of our youth have been homeless, incarcerated, in foster care, living in shelters or group homes (US-version of an orphanage), abused, abandoned by parents, etc. Many of our youth are pregnant or parenting children of their own, are transgender or LGBTQ+, are in juvenile probation or 2nd-chance alternative sentencing programs, etc.

The Techie Youth accelerated training program is designed specifically for the needs of youth from these demographics to rapidly provide them with high-potential technology career skills.
