Plan for your future
YouthSpark Live events bring young people together to plan their future. Throughout
the event, they identify the skills they need to reach their goals, figure out how
technology will accelerate them forward, and get connected to programs that will
help them get there. YouthSpark Live focuses on three major goals:
Employment: Technology proficiency and preparation for all jobs
Today, nearly all jobs require at least a basic level of technology skills in order
to complete the work. From online job applications to timecards, to email and web-based
research, YouthSpark has resources that can help you get training, and get the skills
to get ahead.
Careers in Tech: Creating your future with computer science
The world we interact with is full of advanced technology. Computer science is the
foundation for much of today’s innovation, and many new jobs are being created for
people with skills in this field. It involves creativity, problem-solving, programming,
the Internet, data, and thinking about the impact of technology in communities.
You can do so many things with computer science skills!
