Think. Learn. Create. Repeat.

Since 2016, UTC has worked in communities to bring needed tech related workshops/programs to communities who need them. We're not a school, we're a community organization whose focus is community development through tech skill acquisition. Our mentors work in the Tech Industry and are open to guide Adults, Seniors, Children and everyone in between.
