In 2018 DHDC was awarded a grant through Best Buy to build a “Best Buy Teen Tech Center” . Best Buy inspires people of all ages to connect, learn, innovate, and improve their lives. They believe that technology can empower people to dream big and accomplish great things. Across the country, many communities lack support and access to the tools and training that can unlock a better future and prepare youth for the challenges ahead.
Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are a place where teens can develop critical skills through hands-on activities that explore their interests in programming, film-making, music production and design. Each location works to bridge the digital divide by giving youth access to tech education opportunities, relationships that help to build confidence, and a foundation for school and career success. A partnership with The Clubhouse Network connects members to a global community of over 100 clubhouses in 20 countries. The Best Buy Teen Tech Center’s Grand Opening at DHDC is set for March 2019.
