Another way Best Buy helps Teens prepare for Future Success
Now in its 10th season, Geek Squad Academy from Best Buy provides teens opportunities where they can develop tech skills that will inspire future education and career choices. To accomplish this, Geek Squad Academy partners with local non-profits and other organizations to expose students ages 10-18 to the latest technology in a fun, interactive setting. With local Geek Squad Agents and Best Buy Blue Shirts hosting classes such as Robotics and Circuitry, Coding, Film Production, Photography, 3D Design, Digital Music, and more, teens build friendships and self-confidence, spark their inner creativity and innovation, and discover how technology can benefit them in school now and in their work lives later.
But this isn't your average camp. When attending a Geek Squad Academy, students become "Junior Agents" and get hands-on experience with some of the newest and coolest technology. We encourage Junior Agents to get up and interacting with the environment, the technology and each other. It is one thing to tell youth about a possible future in technology. We believe that when you actually show them that not only is it a possibility, but that they can start right now, that is when our Junior Agents get inspired and that is when the magic happens.
Geek Squad Academy is partnering with non-profit organizations and other youth programs throughout the U.S. and Canada. Keep an eye out for a camp near you!
