The need for youth to be tech-savvy and develop the 21st-century skills to set them up for future career success is more important than ever. Yet too many teens have little or no access to technology and as a result, they fall behind their peers.
At Best Buy and the Best Buy Foundation, we’re on a mission to provide teens with opportunities where they can develop tech skills that will inspire future education and career choices.
We strive to leverage our local community presence, our technology resources and our talented employees to provide new and creative programs to serve our communities.
National Partnerships – We provide funding to strategic national nonprofit partners that help us further our goal of providing teens with the benefits of technology.
Best Buy Teen Tech Centers – We provide teens a safe place to explore, collaborate and play with technology to develop skills for future success.
Best Buy Teen Tech Summits – Our interactive events bring together Best Buy employee volunteers and teens through technology workshops held at local nonprofits.
Geek Squad Academy – We run hands-on, interactive camps that help kids ages 10 to 18 understand the inner workings of technology.
EveryoneOn – Best Buy and Geek Squad partner with EveryoneOn to offer in-person digital literacy training in underserved communities nationwide, as well as free online digital literacy training.
