The Mission of TECH CORPS’ is three-fold and is achieved through: - PROGRAMS: Bringing additional technology resources to K-12 students and teachers through national, state and local programs such as Camp IT, Student TECH CORPS, Student WEB CORPS, Techie Camp, and Techie Club. - PEOPLE: Recruiting and supporting tech-savvy volunteers from the community to advise and assist schools and youth-serving nonprofit organizations in the integration of new technologies. - PARTNERS: Increasing educational technology resources through partnerships with education, business, government and community.


TECH CORPS was founded in 1995 by Gary Beach, Publisher Emeritus of CIO Magazine. Gary envisioned an organization which would challenge American volunteers to help K-12 schools build a technology infrastructure -- much like the Peace Corps challenges men and women to help developing countries build their infrastructures. Building from a state pilot in Massachusetts, TECH CORPS developed technology programs and deployed tech-savvy volunteers to assist K-12 schools and youth-serving organizations across the country. Over the years, partners such as Cisco, HP, Intel, JP Morgan Chase, Microsoft, NCTA and Time Warner Cable have provided TECH CORPS with the fuel to deliver much-needed technology resources to K-12 students and teachers. Since 1995, more than 10,000 TECH CORPS volunteers have shared their time and talents assisting schools and nonprofit organizations in their communities.

Hyland has partnered with Tech Corps to bring Techie Clubs to local schools for over two years. Not only are the students getting a great experience; our employees are getting a great volunteer experience as well. The Tech Corps team and curriculum is phenomenal and we truly value our partnership. We look forward to our continued collaboration!

I am so glad I was given the opportunity to get involved with TECH CORPS this past summer. This past summer I was a site coordinator for one of the sites for the Student Web Corps Program and I’m currently an instructor for Techie Club. What I really enjoy about this program is their passion to give students and kids the opportunity to learn about the technology industry in a fun and hands on way! The best part about volunteering is seeing the students initially having little to no knowledge about technology and then seeing them by the end of the program wanting to learn more and even some wanting to pursue a career out of it! TECH CORPS is Fantastic!

My son is in Techie club at Indianola K-8 and loves it. The Site Coordinator is amazing with a strong teaching background and my son finds it really fun and interesting. My son self-identifies as a person good in science and math, and this club allows him to explore his interests in a stimulating fun environment. He loves being around other like minded friends. Last year he would really be upset if a snow day closed the school on a Techie Club meeting day!

This is my second year volunteering with Tech Core as a Site Coordinator for a Techie Club. The support we have received from Tech Corps is amazing! The Regional Director we work with, Carla Thompson, is always enthusiastic and quick respond to my many questions. The children in the club have benefitted from it so much - it is such a great opportunity for them to learn more about technology. The training and support the volunteers received is thorough. We are excited to be starting another year!

We have been fortunate to partner with TechCorps through their Techie Camp: Girl Power program. An effective and successful program, we have appreciated our partnership and their dedication to identifying root cause solutions.

TechCorps is a great organization staffed by great people! We have partnered with TechCorps for almost two years and interacting with Carla Thompson the Central Ohio Regional Director has always been a pleasure. Her passion and dedication is evident in every interaction, be it email, or in person. She comes to every event that we hold that benefits TechCorps and is a joy to have there. TechCorps is truly a GREAT nonprofit in every sense of the word. We are by no means a "major," donor partner and the organization has always been so appreciative and excited towards all of our contributions and support. Additionally, they are the only nonprofit in the area who does what they do - empowering and inspiring underrepresented populations with technology, to foster a more diverse STEM community in the future. Being one of these under-represented groups myself, their mission really resonates with me. With the changing economic landscape that is geared towards STEM, we need organizations like this! I look forward to supporting TechCorps mission for many years to come.

Techie Camp: Girl Power was an amazing opportunity and experience for my daughter and her friend. I am so grateful that they were able to participate. I think the girls learned so much while having a great time. They also developed much greater self-efficacy in building, programming, trouble shooting, and working in collaborative teams. Great stuff!!!!

I have been a Techie Club volunteer for the past 2 years and it has been a wonderful experience. The Techie Club program brings hands-on experience to elementary school children. I've worked with 4th - 6th graders who would otherwise not have the opportunity to touch all these different areas of technology. We had them removing and reinstalling computer components, building working robot, creating their own movies and games and much more. I've met some wonderful people in Tech Corps who are excited and passionate about their work in this STEM effort. As an IT professional, this is needed, keep up the good work, you are making a difference!!
