From the Best Buy website:
As a means to prepare teens for the tech-reliant jobs of the future, the Best Buy Foundation will provide funding to equitable, innovative, impact driven programs in eligible non-profit organizations committed to enhancing the lives of teens 13 – 18 years old through cutting edge technology enabled curricula. Programs should include hands-on learning opportunities that lead to skill development and engage the youth in experimenting and interacting with the latest technologies to close the digital skills gap.
Our goal is to provide teens from under resourced communities with access to innovative technologies and help them stay engaged and become increasingly fluent in technological fields while developing skills to help better prepare them for future education and career success. As a measure of long-term success, we are looking to partner with non-profit organizations enabling youth to obtain industry recognized competency or credentials.
