05 Mar: Best Buy Announces 2018 National Grant Recipients

Best Buy recently set a lofty goal: to prepare 1 million teens from underserved communities for tech-reliant jobs each year by 2020.

We know this work is key, not only to help solve a skills gap, but to build a diverse talent pipeline for Best Buy and our partner companies. However, we can’t accomplish it alone. That’s why we’re partnering with nonprofits focused on tech education who can help us make a greater collective impact.

This year, we are investing nearly $1.5 million in our National Grants Program, funding nine strategic partners who provide curriculum and programming for our new Career Pathways program.

09 Mar: Best Buy Awards Nearly $2 Million to Teen-Focused Nonprofits

Technology has become ingrained in our society, and it’s not hard to fathom that more than 75 percent of jobs over the next decade will require tech skills. However, many teens do not have adequate tech education to be prepared for jobs of the future.

At Best Buy, this opportunity gap is where we have decided to focus our community giving and signature community programs.

We’re committed to keeping our communities strong. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we rely on our communities to provide a talented workforce.
