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!

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.
