TxT Fellowship

Benefits of a Teens Exploring Technology (TXT) Fellow
As a TXT fellow, you will grow as an individual while inspiring the next generation of tech entrepreneurs to develop solutions for social problems in low-income communities. Through 3 months, you will develop skills that will advance your career in leadership, entrepreneurship, and professionalism by managing teen startups through coding, design thinking and the lean startup methodology.


Through site visits and guest speakers, you will be able to meet with professionals from top tech companies and build your network.

Leadership Development

TXT will challenge fellows on a daily basis to learn fast, set/execute goals, and mentor teens in the right direction which will ultimately sharpen their skills in the TXT culture and beyond.

Career Preparation

You will have the opportunity to learn directly from entrepreneurs on how they were able to grow their business, and you will be able to apply these techniques in the management of your own teen tech startup.
