Annenberg Foundation Partnership with Best Buy and Greater LA Education Foundation will Create Network of 12 Teen Tech Centers

Last December, Best Buy announced a five-year plan with bold commitments for building brighter futures for our communities. Today, Best Buy is sharing that as part of the plan, they are committing $10 million to provide a new network of opportunities for youth in Los Angeles.

Called the Community Impact Hub, it was created in collaboration with founding partners The Annenberg Foundation and the Greater LA Education Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Los Angeles County Office of Education. This model will create up to 12 new Teen Tech Centers in the LA area by 2023.

“Helping create the Community Impact Hub in LA was a natural extension of the Annenberg Foundation’s existing work with Best Buy. The Teen Tech Center we’re building in South LA in partnership with VSEDC will be a core pillar of that hub – with a bold vision to address learning loss, help close the digital divide, and provide young women and youth of color with meaningful, career-linked opportunities.”
