About YTC


As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit YTC provides technology and engineering education to at-risk youth through after-school clubs, competitions, and camps.

Students learn about STEM-related careers through hands-on, skills-based learning in the Chicago Metro region, and a partner site in Durango, Mexico.  Students also learn good citizenship through recycling practices that give back to the communities they serve.​

YTC's collection of community/school computer clubs and associated partners are connected and supported through a central hub where youth connect to the digital world and global economy.  This portal was co-developed with JP Morgan Chase Foundation's Force For Good program.

YTC's curriculum includes Computer Repair, A+ Preparation; Robotics using Arduino, and a Community Service component that refurbishes and donates computers, and training to non-profits, and families in need.  Adaptable programming allows for innovation and creativity while maintaining consistent learning objectives.

We believe all teens can embrace who they are,
define their future, and change the world.
