Do you picture yourself as your own boss? Wish you had the skills to build an app? Want to get a head start on success? Hoist is where you can develop your ideas and meet teens with similar ambitions.
Hoist is a tech club for teens interested in coding, design or entrepreneurship. If you’re age 12 to 19 and have an interest in startups or coding, then come check it out! Everyone is welcome, and it’s free!
Meet up with Hoist members once per month, with occasional one-time events like attending an entrepreneurship class at a local university.
In addition to our free workshops and lunch, we are now please to offer laptops for use at our events on a per-need basis.
