TECH CORPS has worked with our students for over 5 years. They have the best programming and instructors. Their team has developed multiple summer programming options for us with the support of local industry. We highly recommend this program to any school or afterschool program looking for STEM, Computer Science, Coding, or IT opportunities for students. They are one of our best school partners. Unlike other non-profits, they are truly collaborative. Their team understands our school and has worked to provide sustainable programming for our students. The videos show our students discussing their experience.
TechCorps is an AMAZING organization. Partnering with them is always a great experience. Our community is grateful to have an organization who is invested in teaching our black and brown youth technology.
TECH CORPS is a dynamic organization that puts its students and volunteers' interests first. As a Board Fellow (a non-voting Board Member for educational experience), I have observed and worked with a group that always strives to move the organization forward in its inclusivity and innovation in the tech education space. The TC team and its volunteers are passionate with developing tech talent and providing opportunities for all students from ALL BACKGROUNDS.
In 2016, I began working as the Workforce leader for an 11 -county region in Central Ohio. At this time I had the pleasure of being introduced to Tech Corps and their Executive Director , Lisa Chambers. I learned of the many solutions Tech Corps offers students across the nation to gain valuable technical and computer related skills. I also observed how the personal care and attention the Tech Corps team delivers to students and their families builds confidence and a greater sense of community. Our K-12 systems across the nation have many challenges and Tech Corps does a fantastic job of meeting the systems and students where they are, providing relevant trainings, camps and experiences for the students and contributing to the greater good of the community.
In 2020, I was offered the opportunity to join the board of Tech Corps and serve in a more direct way of support to the organizations, the students & families, and the community. The skills taught through Tech Corps and their design and delivery of programs is what students need and employers value. I'm very glad to be a part of the team and encourage you to support and engage with Tech Corps .
I am entering my third term as a Board Member with TECH CORPS and cannot speak highly enough of the organization, its programming, and its leadership. TECH CORPS exposes K-12 youth to computer science and STEM programming, and related career paths, in fun, unique ways, both through in-person and remote-based models. TECH CORPS has impacted countless students in Ohio, and beyond, and I only wish that something similar had existed when I was school-aged!
My child was excited to attend TECH CORPS- Robotic Camp. Each day that he attended was awesome. He enjoyed every minute of the camp and was excited about all that he learned! As a parent, I am so grateful that there are programs like TECH CORPS that offer such great programming for our kids. Thank you TECH CORPS!
I was excited to volunteer my time supporting Techie Club in order to inspire and equip the next generation of aviation and aerospace. Helping students use their creativity and embrace their potential to impact the future is something I have always been very passionate very about. I signed up as a way to stay connected with the community during the COVID pandemic in a virtual environment. Programs like this are important to Boeing because we are able to connect with the community and help change perceptions about STEM/STEAM. It was a lot fun for me to be able to help with the development of our youth and to build upon their passion for STEM through collaboration, persistence and problem-solving. I believe it was beneficial to the students but also very rewarding for me to be able to give back by introducing the students to computing topics such as: basic programming, basic web development, robotics, hardware identification, software applications, internet, and social networks in a fun and exciting way. This prepares them for the future and sets up the next generation of our workforce.
The organization does a great job getting the kids engaged with different and fun technologies. The organization of the full time tech corp members in getting materials, schedules, and generally planning is very impressive and removes lots of stress from the volunteers. Overall a great experience
I was a student with TECH CORPS for
multiple thing they have helped me
learn a lot about today and in the
future society and I would love to
thank them for everything they did
also TECH CORPS is an easy and free
program that teaches you about
technology and programming
Hello, My name is Mawuko Addae and I took part of this program last year so I thought it would be easy since I’ve gotten experience. Once I joined the program this year, I was right about it being easy. Their website was easy to navigate through since I did it last year, the works were similar but easier, and it wasn’t as stressful compared to last year. I really had no regrets doing it this year although I hesitated to take part thinking it would be hard like last year. I’ll be looking forward taking part again next year again which will be my last time.
My grandson had the honor of working with Tech Corps and his experience was phenomenal! The process to engage was easy and the staff and coaches were fantastic. I have custody of my grandson and it's very important to me that he stays engaged and productive throughout the summer. This was a perfect fit for our needs and motivated him to want to learn more about cyber security and artificial intelligence. Thanks to all who make this possible!!
GREAT mission, GREAT team! the CLOZTALK team is honored to call this org a partner & promote its good work!

Michelle Moore and Tech Corps has brought programs to Warrensville that would not have happened without these innovative initiatives. Michelle first found funding for my classroom when I was teaching web design at the high school. She found funding for computers that students could build and program in order to learn how computers work.
Last summer, she found funding for our Warrensville Middle Schoolers to learn how to program Lego Mind storms during a summer camp.
This year, I am teaching at the middle school, and I am working with her to bring a Techie Club to my Middle Schoolers where they will be learning about Project Management, Cyber Security, and much more.
I look forward to the innovative programs that she continues to bring to our students at Warrensville.
Teach Corps does amazing work to ensure that youth can discover how they might fit in the work of technology!
They have been a great partner for several years and we are always excited to host tech camps with them and see our local youth's face light up as they learn how to code or build a robot. We are so honored to have them as a partner and to support the work they are doing.
I helped my team of young ladies win...they did all the hard work...Tech Corps provided me a wonderful learning system!
As part of TECH CORPS' initial founding team 25 years ago, I am in awe of all that TECH CORPS continues to contribute to education. At its core has been a consistent commitment to being nimble in adapting and evolving to meet the emerging needs of students and teachers. As a result the tools, programs, and training offer strong and relevant support that not only enhances current educational experiences but also prepares tomorrow's workforce with the skills needed for meaningful employment. Never has the need been more critical nor TECH CORPS' nimble response been more evident than during these challenging months of the coronavirus. I am proud to support and endorse TECH CORPS' amazing leadership team and their work in building relevant and successful programs that support the education of our youth!
Tech corps was a great experience for me at first it was a little hard but then once I became confident asked questions it was pretty fun
Tech Corps is one of the best programs that I have ever been involved with. This program has taught me so many different things on so many different levels. They've helped me with so much, as far as teamwork and also getting out of my shell. This is an awesome program and I recommend it to everybody.
My experience with this nonprofit was great! I learned a lot from this program that could help me in the future. I enjoyed the time I spent on this program. It has helped me gain financial knowledge, data analytic skills, programming skills, leadership skills, and knowledge to help me become a better social person.
We love our experience with Tech Corps. From the very beginning to the end of the program, all staff members were very helpful and in tune with how the children were progressing.
My children thoroughly enjoyed the process of coming up with an idea for a Scratch game and actually creating it. It gave them a sense of accomplishment.
Many thanks to everyone at Tech Corps for all you do!
The teachers put decent efforts in preparing the tech course content and the communication was just at the right time when the summer vacation had started. My two kids enrolled in the coding course and even till today they have not had enough with Scratch trying out building new games. The swag box was icing to the cake and the kids were so excited to receive the tech-corps stuff. This NGO is doing all the right things to impact the community.
My son is in middle school and didn't have any experience in coding. He attended a week of Techie Camp this past summer and was surprised at how much he learned in a short period of time. This camp was fun and the instructors were patient and very knowledgeable. Our family appreciates that the camp was sponsored and free for our son to attend. Even if he doesn't follow a career in technology, this was a great experience for him to start thinking differently about his options. Thank you!
My daughter completed the Techie Camp this week and absolutely loved it! She was so excited to tell me what kind of robot they built that day when I picked her up. I highly recommend this program.
Tech Corps is a wonderful organization that provides powerful messages and knowledge to children. Seeing the children that they support learning and thriving with the things being taught is fantastic.
Really loved the program as Ethan enjoyed every session. Great learning experience and appreciate all of the hands on time. Fantastic at supporting kids with special needs!
I’m very pleased of the experience that my daughter had at camp. I saw her begin to get bored this summer. The camp really got her thinking and engaged. Thanks tech corps!
My daughter attended the Robotics camp and she loved it! She learned so much and found a new love for technology and robotics.
Excellent program for my son! He learned some invaluable lessons about Robotics, programming, and computing.
Tech Corps is an amazing program because of the work I do with the students. As I motivate them to do their best, they motivate me to be the best instructor I can be.
Our youngest son enjoyed this 1 week experience. He loved it. He was excited at every point. I hope he and other kids who don’t have these opportunities and have financial restrictions get to enjoy and learn.
Two years ago, I attended Tech Corps' Girls of Color Hack. I met so many amazing students that were willing to learn more about technology just as I was. We got to meet mentors, listen to the director's inspiring words and work on a project that would empower women. Tech Corps made me feel like anything was possible. I felt confident and went back the next year.
This organization provides a great camp for girls where they learn how to code and make apps. My daughter really loved it! Thank you
Tech Corps hosted an amazing robotics workshop at our school! From the recruitment of students to the provision of instructors and resources, the professionals that we worked with from Tech Corps were incredible. They were flexible, positive, and worked well with our students. For many of our students, this workshop was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I wish I had an audio file to share of the joy that I heard from our students throughout the experience, including shouts of "this must be heaven", "this is the coolest thing I've ever gotten to do!" and "I wish I could do this every day!" Thank you, Tech Corps for helping us get technology into the hands of our 5th and 6th graders and sparking their interest in technology-related careers at such an impressionable age!
It's a pleasure working with Tech Corps. Their mission of providing students technology education is so important. Additionally, the staff is professional and helpful!
I had a great experience volunteering for Tech Corps. This was my first experience with them and I was very impressed in what they were teaching the students and the participation by the students. Great program for kids to learn about technology and plan their future.
I was fortunate enough to participate in TechCorp in 2016 and was very excited about the way they were bridging the technology gap with HS students. I was fortunate again to re-connect with them this week, 5/16/2018 & 5/17/2018, to help connect their students with my industry and IT in particular. It is a great program; I wish it existed when I was young.
I will continue to be involved with such a great program to help our youth know what is out there for career options and get them interested in these career opportunities.
The volunteers and organizers are very professional and just great individuals with their hearts in the right place.

Techcorps is a nonprofit organization that focuses upon technology programs for elementary age students all the way to high school students. I'm in my 5th year with Techcorps. Every year they continue to expand. I believe this is due to their sincere belief that every child matters, the respect they show to their employees on a daily basis, and the family atmosphere they create with both their employees and the students and families that they embrace.
Their programs are top notch and cover assorted time frames. The company focuses upon reaching students in need who may not have technology in their lives on a day to day basis. They also focus upon minorities in both race and gender who would not typically experience technology opportunities.
Overall, Techcorps is making a tremendous impact on the youth of the communities in which they are located and I am grateful to be working with such dedicated people.
Our experience at Georgian Heights Elementary with Tech Corps was so well received. The students were excited and engaged throughout the workshop. The Tech Corps lesson was well organized making it fun for all the students. Every student participated in creating a Lego robotic car and then cheered friends on during the obstacle course challenge. They were also excited with the gift bag they received after completing the workshop. The only disappointment was that it was only for one day.
My daughter participated in a class with Tech Corps and learned a lot in the few hour class. She was so excited and wants to do another class somtime
My daughter is quiet and reserved but she had a wonderful time at her seminar. She said she learned a lot.
It is one thing to see what happens behind the scenes at TECH CORPS, however, to see it's impact on the community is a whole different experience. TECH CORPS dedication to educating K-12 graders on modern technology skills is not only helpful, but much needed in today's society. All of the members who volunteer or work for this organization are some of the most positive and inspiring group of individuals I have met. I love TECH CORPS!
My daughter was able to go to coding class with this great non-profit. It was a great experience and way to introduce her to technology skills she might want to pursue later. thank you!
Tech Corps is an amazing nonprofit organization to work for and with! Every person in Tech Corps is passionate, kind, and determined to see our dream succeed. From summer camps to one-day workshops, TC offers incredible opportunities to the youth of today.
TECH CORPS is a great non-profit with the goal of educating students about the computer science and technology field. I worked as a Techie Camp and HS Coding Camp instructor this summer and had a wonderful experience teaching kids about a growing field that they don't get much of an opportunity to learn about during the school year. If you have a student that is interested in learning about programming, robotics, video game production, or cyber security I would highly recommend their programs.
I went through a similar program in high school that gave me my own start in computer science; now that I'm a PhD-track researcher in the field, I decided to volunteer as an instructor. It was amazing watching these kids pick up so much of a command of programming in such a short time, and I feel like I really had an impact.
In this technological era of ours, it is important that we prepare our youth to navigate this increasingly evolving landscape. In addition, the tools for learning and discovery in this realm of science and development should be readily accessible to all.
Tech Corps puts forth a great effort to promote and deliver technology programs that introduces and exposes children and young adults, of the inner city and urban areas, to the knowledge and skills needed to build upon in hopes of becoming technology professionals in the future.
As a Computer Career Corps instructor, I have had the privilege and honor to share in their mission to provide technology resources and education to school-aged children. The experience, knowledge, and skills that I obtained are invaluable. While this opportunity was very rewarding, I was quite humbled and, now, have a reinforced perspective on how I can help also.
Whether you would be a volunteer, an employee, or anyone who is affiliated with Tech Corps and its programs, there is a richness in the diversity of the organization’s individuals and offerings that would be advantageous to anyone seeking to align themselves in the effort to ensure the profitability, viability, and longevity of our society.
Working with the students from Tech Corps over the summer has been an awesome opportunity. I believe that this program is an awesome opportunity for our nations youth and helps to prepare our students, children, and families for life after they graduate high school, head off to college or into the workforce. I think that it has helped to enlist more young women into the technology field which is under represented by the female population and it has helped to show more young ladies that the technology field can be a field that they can achieve in. It is important to keep programs like this in place because it builds excellent life skills that a regular school environment just doesn't have the time to provide.
I had the pleasure of being one of the instructors for the Dekalb County areas in Georgia. It truly was a pleasant experience and one that brings useful contributions to the local area. Seeing kids get interested in expressing their creativity whilst learning skills and lessons that will help them in any endeavor they choose.
Kids learn, meet new friends, experience actual tools used in professional careers, and as an added bonus, seeing the parents and family of the kids come and see their child's work brings smiles and pride to their faces.
It is in my opinion that more organizations like Tech Corp's Techie Camp are needed, and I hope that it, and others like it, continue aiding and building bridges and stairs for the younger generations going forward.
TECH CORPS offers a wide variety of top notch, technology-based programs for elementary, middle, and high school aged youth. Their hands-on programs are designed to engage participants in coding, website development, app development, robotics, and more. This organization works hard to excite and empower youth of all backgrounds.
I have seen firsthand how TECH CORPS has empowered its participants. For the past three summers, I have worked as an instructor in the Student WEB CORPS program offered by TECH CORPS. During the eight week program, high school youth learn how to code using HTML and CSS, design multiple websites, create a professional website for a mock small business, and create a professional résumé. Participants leave the program with real-life professional skills, ranging from technological know how to polished presentation skills, and gain greater self-confidence in the process. I highly recommend TECH CORPS as an organization and hope more people can participate in their programs.
In my short time as an instructor with tech corps I have nothing but nice things to say about all the people I've worked with. It really shows that this is more than a job for all of them and their hearts are truly invested in the futures of the young people we interact with.
Great! I had fun, and learned a lot. There is not a place in the world with a nicer team and a more comfortable work environment.
I learned a lot being an instructor for Tech Corps. It allowed me to make a significant impact on the student's lives. I appreciate this organization for giving me a chance to be a mentor to those kids considering that I used to be in their shoes not long ago. I hope one day I will look back at this moment and appreciate that I took part in being on the Tech corps staff.
As an instructor, I felt like I had plenty of guidance in how to help my students, but I also had enough freedom to teach in my own style. We definitely make a difference for these students, and the real-world lessons that they learned will be invaluable as they move forward.
They definitely help those that need the help. Also giving kids skills to use in there life and allow them to decide what they would like to do in life.
I was an instructor for Tech Corp's TechieCamp program last Summer, and their huge value as an organization should not be understated. After only a week of teaching my students to code, they began to grasp concepts in programming and Computer Science that most people are never even exposed to. Most importantly, the students truly enjoyed the camp, and all expressed an interest in continuing their computer science studies. I truly believe that these kids will excel in their endeavors thanks to the skills that Tech Corps has given them.
Great organization that works with volunteers to encourage K-12 students to learn IT skills and consider careers. I volunteered at an elementary school with 4th and 5th grade girls in a Techie Club.
As a Site Coordinator for a Web Corps site, I could witness the enormous excitement, eagerness for the 'next' topic to master and the empowerment as the Final Project emerged for the student-employees.
Having been an entrepreneur, I sensed these WebCorps members gained a new paradigm that has them at the center of control for their future roles in web site development.
The skills that were acquired throughout the summer sessions will be touchstones for career development, as well as serving as strong elements in future educational experiences in the field.
The trainers did a great job challenging the girls to learn more about building aps for their android phones. I was impressed with the girls talking to the group and using a PowerPoint to guide the audience through their projects.
