Best Buy Social Impact

Building brighter futures through technology.


Your potential shouldn’t be determined by the zip code in which you were born. But, teens from disinvested communities often don’t have access to the tech tools, training and mentorship they need to succeed.

With your help, we’re changing that.

Our suite of programs provides teens access to cutting-edge technology, inspiring role models and mentors and real-world career opportunities — all in a safe, supportive environment.
