Youth Initiatives @ GMCC


We believe every young person
has the capacity for “genius.”

Our student-centered programming is designed by a collaborative team of experienced educators, community partners, and GMCC staff. The core beliefs driving the program design process are: every young person has the capacity for genius; all youth deserve access to high-quality educational methods and the latest technologies; and the well-being of the whole child (mental, physical, spiritual, intellectual) are critical to fostering healthy youth development.

Tech Teens

Tech Teens is a Saturday out-of-school experience that focuses on the development of digital technology skills through hands-on, challenge-based activities that foster creativity, independence, critical thinking, and self-awareness. The goal of Tech Teens is to spark an interest in technology, expose students to the many areas of the tech field, and position them for careers in technology or those that require use of technology.

Stay tuned for our next session of Tech Teens!
