Reviews for Tech Corps
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!
Tech Corps did a nice job of offering many different selections of summer courses to our students in Lorain County. They were professional in handling the student application process and communication with parents. I'm looking forward to more opportunities with them in the future.
I had a wonderful opportunity to work with TECH CORPS this summer and it was the greatest way to spend my time. It prepared me for my (hopeful) future career and with my presentation skills. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in STEM careers
My son really enjoyed the Tech Corp Program. It helped him confirm as to what he wanted to go to college for. He took part in the Summer Internship program with Tech Corp. With the hands on experience with REAL world issues when regarding programming, helped him to narrow down what field he wants to study. His choice is with Computer Forensic Science with a minor in Criminology. All because of this program. I love it and recommend that more students become a part of it.
My son was also amazed how he became a part of the review in the Columbus Dispatch Paper over the summer.
Tech Corps' mission is an important one, becoming increasingly important in our more technology-based world. The organization's lean staff is committed and creative, developing strategic partnerships that serve to advance and expand the work. One of the organization's unique strengths is its effective use of professional volunteers from the various tech industries.
Tech Corps put on a Techie Camp at our University last summer. The process was very easy and, for the most part, smooth. The experience was enjoyed by all participants and we look forward to hosting more Tech Corps-run camps in the future!
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!
This was my son's first year attending the Techie Camp at Case Western Reserve and what a WONDERFUL experience!! I learned of the Techie Camp via of my son's school, Shaker Middle, and with the assistance of the scholarship given I am so happy he had the opportunity to attend, Thank you for the Blessing!! Planning early and looking forward to next year...DEFINETLY passing the word, what a great opportunity for our kids in today's society!!!

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!
