“The youth unemployment crisis in our society is getting worse every day.  This issue needs a full community response and I strongly believe that the Tech and IT Communities are best positioned to make a significant positive change to this crisis. We need the Tech/IT Community to RISE UP and give young people hope for a better future.”
