Our Vision

Spark a feeling of awe, action, and support in youth by connecting them with the tech world.

What We Do

YouthComputing is a non-profit organization committed to sparking a feeling of awe, action, and support in youth by connecting them with the tech world. We want to bring emerging technologies to youth and ensure that they feel supported when working in the tech world. We also want to ensure that youth are updated with industry level knowledge and are able to apply their skills outside of a classroom.

Why We Do It

We’re crazy enough to think we can change the world. Crazy because we’re just a bunch of friends trying to solve a problem we used to have. Crazy because we’ve been diagnosed with a love of learning. Crazy because we fit a 100 people in a venue that fits only 50 while keeping all of our events free. The dreamers. The believers. The doers. Join us.
