TECH CORPS is an AMAZING organization that offered our daughter an opportunity of a lifetime. The programs that she was elected to attend in were very well structured, organized, and professionally ran by the staff of TECH CORPS. My daughter walked away from these programs with a welt of knowledge that she was able to apply during her academic school year. In addition, she was able to apply her learnings from Techie Camp outside of the classroom and into her acting. I can't say enough about how phenomenal TECH Corps is in a paragraph. The skills and exposure that she obtained through TECH Corps should be offered more frequently and we wish that we could have had a summer long program with this type of curriculum versus a weeklong. We all walked away from the program wishing we had more time!!!!!!! TECH CORPS your organization is AWESOME and the flexibility of the staff was very impressive!

The Ohio State University Women in Engineering (WiE) Program has worked with TECH CORPS as a non-profit community partner for almost three years. WiE and TECH CORPS have worked to support two FIRST Lego League teams, WiE TECHie and WiE TECHie Bytes, and one-day events to introduce girls to STEM fields. TECH CORPS is an excellent organization to increase the number of women and underrepresented students in these career fields. The staff and administrators at TECH CORPS (Lisa Chambers and Carla Thompson) are dedicated professionals that care about the success of their students. I have enjoyed working with TECH CORPS on our one-day events, such as Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) and long-term projects, such as our partnership to support FIRST Lego League teams. I look forward to future endeavors and keep up the terrific work!

I worked as a lead instructor for CSTC for 3 years and have found it to be a very beneficial program for young adults within their lives due to the advancement of technology within this world and our society today. CSTC gives these young adults an edge as far as being more educated and aware of computer technology that we have today. It also helps the young adults with making an early decision when it comes to what field of degree that they would like to pursue prior to going to college.
