PowerUp USA is the leader in providing technology and media education to urban youth, low-income adults, and dislocated workers. Since 1997 Tommy Nichols has trained more than 900 youth and adults in the areas of technology and media.
The digital divide has caused many disadvantaged youth to be 5-10 years behind in technological advancements and because of cost, families in urban communities are the least likely to be exposed to the technology needed to compete in the 21st century. PowerUp USA has a goal of utilizing modern technology to empower more than 1200 youth by the year 2019.
Many of our programs work with youth between the ages of 7-17 where they learn how to build computers, design websites, produce, direct and edit their own movie in an intimate class setting.
