Premium invests in Best Buy Teen Tech Centers.

Share This

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 will partner to open another Center in Orlando, Florida.

“Best Buy’s partnership with Premium has been a key driver of our growth for the past two decades. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back by helping enrich the lives of teens through technology as part of their incredible Teen Tech Centers initiative.”
– Kevin Travers
Premium Chief Executive Officer

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 across the country.

“We are so incredibly grateful for the outstanding support of our Best Buy Teen Tech Centers from Premium. Their commitment to supporting seven Teen Tech Centers across the country is truly amazing, and we are thrilled for the opportunity to continue our partnership and mission together.”
– Andrea Wood
Best Buy Head of Social Impact

The exact locations of these five new Teen Tech Centers will be announced at a later date.
