Are you ready to use your technology skills to expand educational opportunities for learners around the world through an immersive service-learning project?

Team4Tech volunteers give their time and talents to the people they serve. From setting up computer labs and training master teachers in Tanzania, to teaching entrepreneurship to women in India, Team4Tech has a project to leverage your business and technology skills to help nonprofits accelerate opportunities for thousands of learners. In addition, the Team4Tech experience helps volunteers develop the following five 21st century leadership skills:

Customer-centric Innovation

Inclusivity

Communication and Collaboration

Decision Making Under Ambiguity

Growth Mindset and Resilience

How It Works

The project fee covers all in-country expenses, including accommodations, meals and local transportation, but it excludes airfare, vaccinations and visas. Team4Tech provides a fundraising platform for volunteers who wish to raise contributions from friends and family in support of their participation. Projects are designed to provide a fully immersive local experience. Teams typically consist of five to 12 volunteers, with direct support from one or two Team4Tech staff.
