Homeless teens are working their tech-savvy sides thanks to a special club at their shelter.
Brookview House executive director Deborah Hughes told The Huffington Post in an email that the club isn t just about helping the teens learn a cool, new skill — it s also about helping them prepare for the future.
It is our hope that this confidence will propel them on to a track that leads to college.
They re guided and coached through different modules by volunteers as well as members of the area s tech companies.
In addition to gaining knowledge, Hughes told HuffPost that she s also noticed other positive changes in the teens since joining the club.
