What is Team4Tech?

We see a world where all students have access to quality education.

Team4Tech partners with established, high performing nonprofits for three to five years, to help realize the nonprofit’s goals for integrating technology to increase educational outcomes for underserved learners. Team4Tech collaborates with the nonprofit to define the goals and metrics of the partnership as well as the scope of annual projects which contribute hundreds of hours of pro bono consulting and technology grants.

For each project, a team of pro bono consultants from leading technology companies works with nonprofit staff to learn about the nonprofit’s goals and design technology solutions and training to meet those goals as well as the needs of staff, learners and the local context. The pro bono consultants then work with nonprofit staff and teachers to implement the technology and building capacity to use the technology effectively in teaching and learning. 

In response to COVID-19, educational nonprofits are pivoting to provide and scale remote support to learners. Team4Tech has developed a new fully virtual pro bono project model to support these needs. This year, Team4Tech will launch more than 10 projects using this new model and will continue to adapt and innovate based on nonprofit feedback and needs. 
 

The ultimate goal is to advance progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4.4: to substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills — including technical and vocational skills — for employment, decent jobs, and entrepreneurship.

Since 2013, Team4Tech has supported more than 30 nonprofits in building capacity through technology and training to improve education and economic opportunities for over 80,000 underserved learners in 19 countries.

Team4Tech's goal is to reach 100,000 learners by 2023.

HundrED Academy Review

The potential here is enourmous. The scalability of connecting people and organisations with resources, via a moral purpose, is incredibly powerful. The combination of networking and sharing education via these methods is inspiring and can create a real impact, as evidenced to date.
