KidsTek is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
The mission of KidsTek is to increase the technology literacy of Colorado's underserved children and youth by providing free technology education through innovative after-school project based programs and in-school certification programs.
Founded in 2000 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by several of Colorados leading technology executives to enhance our communities and to develop the future technology workforce through opportunity and perspective-broadening experiences for undeserved youth. With a start-up grant from the Anschutz Foundation, KidsTek has raised over $1,000,000 to date to deliver to technology programs in metro Denver. Through our first non-profit partnership, the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver (BGCMD), we have established a successful technology program for kids, Ages K-12, that is an award-winning model for Boys & Girls Clubs nationally.
