BEST BUY TEEN TECH CENTER
Everyone, regardless of their age, deserves a place where they can figure out who they are and what matters to them. Too often, young people are deprived of this basic amenity. Whether it's at school or in the community, there's often an outside expectation that they should be "doing something." But teenagers need unstructured time to just be teenagers—hang with friends, blow off steam, and take their mind off of their responsibilities. We all need that balance in our lives.
We established the Best Buy Teen Tech Center to offer a safe place for young people to be themselves, discover new interests and new friends who share them—maybe even learn a new skill. They can also play around with some really fancy toys that happen to be the tools of the trade for a variety of creative industries. When young people discover a new hobby that’s fun, has career potential, and they’re good at it, it’s a game changer. It builds confidence and can even open new doors for their future.
