The Best Buy Foundation is committed to giving underserved teens hands-on access to the tech education and tools they need to be prepared for the tech-reliant jobs of the future. The Foundation’s National Partnership Request for Proposals seeks nonprofit partners that generate interest and awareness in tech-related careers; improve access to training, credentialing, and employment; and support tech career progression. Best Buy is searching for organizations with multiple locations nationwide and a demonstrated track record in career pathway programming to build tech skill proficiency as well as provide career readiness and employment opportunities for underserved teens.
