Changing lives.

The Teen Tech Center program by Best Buy is creating opportunity. Every kid deserves to pursue their dreams. With tech, training, guidance, and mentoring — anything is possible.

The program has given over 1 million youth a brighter future. We provide access to digital tools + education that will change a kid’s life — and help create a good tomorrow, together.

We’re committed to preparing teens from under-served communities for tech-reliant jobs. Youth mentorship is at the heart of our program. We want to give them access — to all they need — to succeed. In the next 10 years — 80% of jobs will require tech skills. The program helps youth + young adults prepare, with hands-on experience:

  • digital media
  • robotics
  • virtual reality
  • 3D printing
  • sound studio

We’re helping cultivate the next generation of teachers, inventors, creators, engineers, parents, community leaders, policy-makers, and entrepreneurs. And we’re just getting started — 92% of our youth participants plan to continue their education beyond high school.

Increasing our impact.

  • We’re on-track to reach more than 30,000 teens annually at 100 locations by 2025.
  • 46 Teen Tech Center by Best Buy locations currently open, with plans to expand to 100 by 2025.
  • 30,000 teens reached annually by the end of 2025.
  • Creating talent pipelines in our communities
