AIM Institute, an innovative nonprofit committed to growing a strong and diverse tech community through education, career development and outreach, received a $25,000 grant from AT&T for its Youth in Tech program. These funds will support the program through immersive, problem-based learning, design thinking and growth-mindset techniques to affect interest, attitudes and career aspirations in at-risk girls and youth of color.

Through collaboration with partner organizations, Youth in Tech also provides youth with experiences using technology in a fun atmosphere, intended to inspire and help them envision a future in a tech career.
