2024 Technology Fair

Empower your future and join us for our third annual tech fair!

This year, the fair will feature professional presentations, live demos and raffles, and valuable resources for further opportunities in tech. Don’t miss this chance to network, learn new skills and unlock exciting possibilities.

Last year, we saw a fantastic turnout of participants and tech professionals at our annual technology fair.

Our in-person fair for participants will be held at our Long Island City service center (29-76 Northern Boulevard, Long Island City). Participants may join for an in-person, live-streamed engagement at Castle Gardens (625 W. 140th St in West Harlem) and our Supervised Release community center (502 E. 163rd Street in the Bronx).

Anyone wishing to attend virtually and watch some of our guest speakers and presentations may do so from their home by registering for a Virtual ticket and receiving a Zoom link.
