TechBridge Youth

HWDI-Icon-01

The TechBridge youth program works with students to streamline their transitions from education to employment. The program ignites the curiosities of young people 12- to 18-years-old to pursue a career in the growing technology and innovation fields.

In partnership with the @Promise Center, TechBridge facilitates after-school programs designed to expose APS middle-school and high-school youth to STEMactivities through hands-on projects in a safe and caring environment. We are grateful for the support of the Atlanta Police Foundation and the Goizueta Family Foundation.

As part of an @Home program, TechBridge offers virtual STEM programming to supplement student learning at home through hands-on activities. We offer this program nationwide.

TechBridge also offers varied activities from supporting workforce development to pre-apprenticeship programs as part of an @School program, all helping to build an early on-ramp towards technology for students.

Our programs are based on data from our recent white paper, written in conjunction with Georgia Tech Research Institute. This paper was made possible through the generosity of the Arthur Blank Foundation. Download the whitepaper to learn more about our research on how to empower opportunity youth.

Opportunity youth are young people who are between the ages of 16 and 24 years old and are disconnected from school and work. This developmental time period, also referred to as emerging adulthood, has great potential for individual growth through exploring independence and life opportunities. Source: Youth.gov.
