Premium invests in Best Buy Teen Tech Centers.
Best Buy Teen Tech Centers are a place where teens from disinvested communities develop critical skills and engage with the latest technology to explore their interests in programming, film-making and music production, graphic design, and robotics.
Across the country, many young people lack access to tech tools, training, and mentorship that can unlock a brighter future. Each Best Buy Teen Tech Center location works with its partners and local community members to bridge the digital divide through tech education, relationships that help to build confidence, and a foundation for school and career success.
Premium Retail Services is the first Best Buy partner to co-sponsor multiple Teen Tech Centers. Premium first partnered with Best Buy, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis (BGCSTL), Gateway PGA Reach and Bellerive Country Club to open a Teen Tech Center at the Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club in St. Louis in February 2019.
In 2021, Best Buy and Premium partnered to open a center in Orlando, Florida, and we opened a third in Richfield, MN, in 2023.
Today, Premium is pleased to announce our commitment to partner with Best Buy to open five additional Teen Tech Centers around the United States. This additional $1MM pledge brings Premium’s total commitment to $1.4MM and 7 Teen Tech Centers nationwide.
We will announce the exact locations of the four pledged Teen Tech Centers as each is opened.
