Participants haveopportunities to see how their local community is impacted by the advancement of digital technology and to form a network of connections throughout their academic and career advancements.
TECH Unleashed is our core pipeline program for 13-17 year olds. Participants collaborate on tech projects for the community giving them opportunities to explore explore coding, advanced MS Office, and audio/visual software and editing. Leadership, time management, conflict resolution, presentation, and networking opportunities set this group up for success no matter what career path they choose.
Costs & Scholarships
We keep the cost of the program as low as possible and offer monthly payment options for year round programs.
Scholarships are available! Our goal is to provide the pipeline programs to all who are interested.
A note from the founders:
Mike Marvin and Christina Lopez
“You may notice that we refrain from using terms such as teacher/student. We recognize that many of the participants know more about specific technology than we do and so we strive to get out of their way by allowing as much autonomy as possible while maintaining a comfortable, diverse, and cooperative environment. The result is an enthusiastic and respectful group that is surprisingly productive… without losing their ability to play and think outside the box. We are honored to have the privilege of working with the next generation of tech giants.”
