Lean TECHniques is excited to host the second annual Tech Journey Open — a golf outing focused on raising money and providing scholarships to students participating in Tech Journey’s Tech Camp program.
This year’s Tech Journey Open will take place on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022 at Beaver Creek Golf Course with a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start.
Last year’s inaugural event raised over $19,600. This money was used to support the Tech Journey organization as a whole and also provide Tech Camp scholarships to nine high school seniors.
Tech Journey is a Des Moines-based nonprofit committed to inspiring and supporting underrepresented youth as they learn about the possibilities within technology. Tech Camp is Tech Journey’s flagship offering — an immersive summer program focused on educating, inspiring and connecting individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups in the tech space with local professionals.
“Tech Journey is such an important organization in our community. Through their work, they’re opening doors for students who otherwise might not get the chance to learn that they have a passion for technology. We know that the best solutions come when you can bring people together who have different backgrounds and perspectives. Tech Journey is helping inspire the next generation and connect them with organizations like ours who can support, mentor and, ideally one day, even hire them. We’re excited to see what impact we can make for Tech Journey as we come together with others in the Iowa tech community to support such a great cause,” said Danielle Brommer, Lean TECHniques Chief Growth Officer.
We hope you’ll join us in opening doors to the tech industry for Iowa youth by participating in the second annual Tech Journey Open.
