Geek-with-a-Cause is a non-profit organization with no administrative overhead devoted to inspiring tech-savvy high school students to mobilize their passion and knowledge of technology for social change. The organization is founded on the premise that with the right tools, high school students can empower underserved non-profit and social enterprises seeking digital technology tools, education, or training that don’t have the resources to hire technical experts. Geek-with-a-Cause also focuses on providing a powerful combination of digital technologies, vocational training, coding instruction, and other skills to motivated K-12 students from underrepresented and under served communities through peer teaching.
