Mission Statement

URBAN Teens eXploring Technology (TxT) develops young men into leaders with strong minds through the exploration and use of technology to positively impact their communities.

Description

Welcome to URBAN Teens eXploring Technology (URBAN TxT)! URBAN TxT is an organization that encourages inner city teen males to become catalysts of change in urban communities. Our focus is to develop teens from South L.A and Watts into a new generation of community and technology leaders.

We believe that access to technology should be available to everyone, especially low socio-economic communities. Through our curriculum we develop a culture of innovation, collaboration, and strong academics among our young men. Technology is the equalizer in the 21st Century and therefore we are committed to nurturing our future leaders.

In small learning circles our youth learn research skills, public speaking, leadership and project management skills by using new media tools including web 2.0 tools. Other skills taught to teens are data analysis and time management.

URBAN TxT believes the following Pillars will be the foundation of each TxTer as they strive to succeed in the program of life.

  • Community
  • Leadership
  • Academics
  • Technology
