About Us

Techie Youth is a non-profit charity of NYC that helps foster-kids (children who have been removed from abusive/neglectful parents/homes) who are approaching the age-of-emancipation (18-21.) We train them in computer-technology and then help them begin a career in the IT-sector. Statistically, without Techie Youth, most of these kids will become homeless or incarcerated - in NYC 80% of homeless people were previously in foster-care. We operate in collaboration with the City of NY and several tech-companies including Microsoft. The Techie Youth initiative is a unique groundbreaking approach that uses technology-education to fix a major worldwide problem (homelessness) - we were recently featured on NY1 News, ABC Here & Now, and are scheduled for interviews at several other news stations.
