The members, sponsors and board of directors for SWFLTech understand the importance of youth programs; the technologists of tomorrow are in the classrooms of today. SWFLTech not only helps to fund many youth programs, but our members give their time and talents by organizing events and mentoring students and teams.

For nearly a decade SWFLTech has been hosting or supporting hack-a-thons. We are one of the original sponsors of the Hertz Hack-a-thon. We not only provide funding, but also provide mentors, food, awards and swag for attendees.
