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 nonprofit 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.
Eligibility: Applicants may be a public or private nonprofit community-based organization but the program must be located within a nonprofit organization targeting teens in under-resourced communities and operate within twenty-five miles of a Best Buy store or Best Buy center of operations.
