The Knowledge Houses serves "at-risk" young adults, 16-24 years of age, with tech-entrepreneurship training, job readiness and career support.
In the face of increased poverty, economic inequality and unemployment, The Knowledge House is dedicated to placing young adults at the center of leading innovation in their neighborhoods to spur community-based economic development. TKH invests in underutilized young adults so that they may develop professionally and launch careers or ventures to uplift their communities.
The Knowledge House sees an opportunity to prepare young people for the million tech jobs that will be available nationwide by 2020. The Knowledge House estimates that half of these jobs will not require a Bachelor’s degree and are more attainable by disconnected youth.
