About Us

Our Mission

Kids in Tech strives to excite, educate, and empower children to acquire skills and confidence in technology through interactive after school programs.

Our programs focus on helping kids develop the necessary tech skills and aptitudes to participate in and be future leaders of the 21st century innovation economy.

History

Kids in Tech was founded in 2016 in Lowell, Massachusetts to prepare disadvantaged kids with interactive, free after school programs in computers and technology. By 2024, 80% of the top 10 most in-demand STEM jobs in the Greater Lowell area will be in technology – and, these are the some of the top most desired skills for many growing industries across the country. In the past three years, Kids in Tech has offered programs at four different sites serving low-income kids in the Lowell area.

According to the Center for Childhood Creativity, “Data shows that young people are not graduating with the skills needed to succeed in a rapidly-evolving, technologically-driven workforce.”

Kids in Tech has proven, demonstrated results, with over 90 percent of our participants reporting increased knowledge, skills, and interest in STEM fields. We’re growing by leaps and bounds and look forward to offering these programs in more communities across the region and around the country.

Our Vision

Kids in Tech hopes to reach even more kids through tech clubs and other programming across the country. With computer science driving many industries, the need for kids to be well-prepared for these career paths is stronger than ever. Schools, unfortunately, provide limited opportunities; only two out of five schools across the country offer instruction in programming and coding, for example. Kids in Tech wants to help fill in the gap with fun learning opportunities for kids to get excited about technology and be tomorrow’s innovators.

Help be part of ensuring kids are prepared and ready to take on the challenges of the future.
