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.
