The mission of KidsTek is to increase the technology literacy of K-12 students at Colorado’s highest-needs schools. We accomplish this through our innovative after school project-based enrichment programs and our in-school college and career preparatory courses at the high school level. KidsTek provides an extensive technology curriculum for our host schools with the goal of providing the tools for long-term academic and professional success.
As we prepare our kids to compete and succeed in the 21st century economy, we look to organizations such as KidsTek to provide the tools and the resources to make that happen. Together, we will make sure that we’re serving our children no matter what zip code they live in.
“The impact of technology and real-life skills KidsTek brings to the students helps make a path of success more reachable!”
“KidsTek was such a meaningful program for my students. The students who participated in KidsTek really became the technology experts in the classroom, and were so eager to teach and help their fellow classmates on the computers.”
We admire what the great people over at KidsTek have been doing with Colorado’s youth for many years
At my summer internship I’m using a ton of stuff from the KidsTek class. I showed the owner how to use mail merge and he was so stoked!
It was awesome having business leaders come in to our class. I learned so much from them.
KidsTek provides quality technological instruction and programming to youth in an expeditionary manner. KidsTek is always a popular program choice for our students because it is as much fun as it is educational. In addition to the COMPASS program, KidsTek has been a very active participant in the City of Aurora’s America’s Promise Alliance program. KidsTek is active with America’s Promise serving on multiple committee’s and wagon teams that program special events for Aurora’s youth.
KidsTek is overall a great program. It has taught me so many things I never thought I would understand. It has opened so many doors for me and has given me so many opportunities and skills to be successful in the technology industry. Before KidsTek, working in the technology industry never crossed my mind, but now it’s something I would love to go into and learn about even more. I am so thankful for being able to participate in this program.
