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!
