TEAM prepares students for opportunities available at the intersection of tech and sport.
As the technology field grows, companies are struggling to recruit and retain a diverse workforce, in part because of a culture that reinforces existing social biases while maintaining fundamental barriers to access. TEAM is creating tomorrow’s diverse technology workforce by engaging young learners with STEM subjects through sports. We create social change by providing access, opportunity and mentorship in the tech industry. Through a one-of-a-kind student training program, we empower students with the skills to create their own playing field.
Working with Alexis, Brandon and Anwar has been great, they are helpful people that I actually look up to.Josiah, TEAM Student
“When my son first enrolled in the TEAM program as a high schooler, I expected that he’d learn some tech skills over several weeks. What he received and continues to receive was not only a specialized technology skill, but also full mentorship from the TEAM staff. Not only did they prepare him for official certification in SportsCode, they continue to mentor him through college by providing guidance, encouragement and connections that expose him to a myriad of opportunities that otherwise wouldn’t have been available. They reinforce critical life and business skills simultaneously with the coding training.”Apryl Rhinehart, mother of Nyle Rhinehart (Cohort 1 TEAM Player)
