Street Tech is committed to bridging the "digital divide" by offering an advanced technology and life-skills training program to at-risk and disadvantaged adults. In a highly professional and nurturing environment, Street Tech trains and certifies participants in state-of-the-art computer skills, then guides graduates into desirable technology careers. Our goal is to develop a "technology academy" model that can be replicated locally and nationally. We believe that computer technology jobs can provide a path to self-improvement and career stability. Street Tech offers young people -- regardless of community, economic, or academic background -- the chance to participate in the Digital Revolution.
