Teen Tech Night @ Mt. Scott Community Center
Mt. Scott Community Center

Mt. Scott Community Center's teen program and Portland’s Future Connect initiative will be hosting, "Tech Night," an opportunity for neighborhood teens to explore tech and vocational opportunities throughout Portland. We're aiming to include hands-on activities and games as a vehicle for sharing information that encourages young people to consider their future career path and necessary education. We're also interested in showcasing volunteer opporunities and cool projects going on in Portland.

If you or your group would be interested in leading a hands-on activity, sharing a volunteer/internship opportunity, or leading a brief skill demonstration, please contact Tabitha Boschetti at tabitha.boschetti@portlandoregon.gov.

Teens interested in attending should contact Mt. Scott at (503) 823-3183 with registration number #365887. All teen events are open to ages 12-18, and while we ask for $1 to offset costs, no one is turned away for lack of funds.

TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) Oregon Launch and Informational Event
Mercy Corps Event Center
TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) Oregon is a unique program that helps high school students (grades 9-12) learn about the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.
More than 23 TiE Chapters world-wide are already running a TYE program and now Oregon will have its own version!

The curriculum starts late September 2014 and will run through Spring 2015. Students will form teams and each team will work on creating a business concept while learning necessary skills through a progressive series of "Boot camp" sessions, lectures, discussions and hands-on activities in sessions on Sundays between Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. The program culminates in a Business Plan Competition in Spring 2015. Winners will go on to compete in the TYE Global Business Plan Competition in June!

For this launch and informational event we will serve dinner, feature speakers and information about the program, a hands-on activity, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and sign up students for the curriculum as well.

This event is aimed at parents, interested high school students, sponsors, and interested members of the entrepreneurial community.

Admission is free but pre-registration is required.

eBay Tech Tuesdays: Let's Talk About the Kids
eBay Community Lounge

It’s summer!

Summer is for kids!

Summer is also for ice cream!

So July’s Tech Tuesday is about kids and ice cream!

Okay. It’s about kids - but we’ll have ice cream.

This month we’re bringing in three local organizations who are working with kids and teens to help them build the skills necessary for careers in technology. Leaders from ChickTech, iUrban Teen, and Girls Inc. will be talking with us about who they are, what they’re doing, and how you can get involved in their efforts.

These folks are doing really awesome things for youth and we’re excited to have them in the eBay house.

As Whitney Houston crooned, “Children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.” So come, listen, and learn about what you can do to help shape the bright young minds that are the future of tech - and really, the future in general.

See you July 28th!

Details:

Doors open at 5:45pm, presentations start at 6:30pm.

Pizza, sodas, and ice cream (and a non-dairy option) will be available.
