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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
My youngest daughter participates in their programs... She is entering her second year and she continues to be excited about the program and staff! As one of the youngest girls participating, I'm always pleased to know how she feels comfortable and confident in the work she is doing with TECH Corps!
Tech Corps, what an amazing organization! The knowledge, and kindness they offer their students is phenomenal. Both my son, and daughter have participated in after school STEM programs through Tech Corps. Our daughter is in WiE TECHie, and has decided to think of a future in Engineering. The confidence Tech Corps has brought to our daughter has been amazing. I will forever be grateful for meeting Miss. Carla Thompson, she has really inspired Heidi, and has the most infectious smile. To give young people the gift of STEM is priceless.
I have been a business partner with Tech Corps since 2004. We have served over 1,000 youth by providing summer employment opportunities, workforce development skills, and – more importantly – technology skills (through hands-on application). We have a number of students that graduated from high school and have continued in the technology career paths. Tech Corps programs is a great asset to Columbus City youth!
