Geek Squad Academy is designed to give youth in underinvested communities ages 10-18 opportunities to develop tech skills that will inspire future education and career choices. This program allows students to envision a future where they are creators, not just consumers, of the technology that powers the world.

When attending a Geek Squad Academy camp, students become "Junior Agents" and get hands-on experience with some of the newest and coolest technology, with instructors from Best Buy and Geek Squad. This two day camp experience will allow students to explore fields like coding, robotics, animation, music production, and more.
