Science and technology are critical drivers of today's global innovation economy. More and more companies, across all industry sectors, are seeking people with technical skills. But, there is a mismatch between education and opportunity-between supply and demand-that we must solve. By increasing student access to training and resources as early as possible, they can build the knowledge, skills, and confidence to realize greater opportunities.


Closing the learning gap is imperative for the success of today's youth and one of the focal points of Microsoft YouthSpark. The Partners for Good Challenge Fund supports top nonprofits working to educate, inspire, and equip today's students to enter tomorrow's advanced technology-based workplace.

Long-Term Impact

By helping YouthSpark organizations access funding, we can all help empower young people around the world to create and seize opportunities to change their world.
