Social Impact

We’re building brighter futures through technology.

Every teen has dreams, and we’re working to make sure they have the opportunity to achieve them. Our programs connect young people with resources to realize their potential and channel their talent, energy and ideas into brighter futures. We believe that with technology, training and mentorship, anything is possible.
Our Commitments

We’re building a network of 100 Teen Tech Centers by 2025.

Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are safe, after-school learning environments equipped with cutting-edge technology. Participating youth learn new skills, stay on-track with school, nurture positive adult and peer relationships, and prepare for the careers of the future.

We’re bringing tech education camps to communities across the country.

Our Geek Squad Academy camps encourage youth to explore technology through immersive training in coding, digital music and film production, photography, 3D design and more.

We’re helping prepare youth for the tech careers of the future.

We offer a year-long Career Pathways program at our Teen Tech Centers that helps strengthen skills in a specific focus area such as cyber security, computer repair or audio engineering. It culminates in a paid summer internship with a local employer.
