NextUp is empowering kids to link technology to their interests. Girls who attended Chicago’s first TechShopz learned how to design mobile apps and how to turn data into eye-catching graphics. “Multiple studies show girls generally lose interest in science and math studies during middle school,” said Tracey Welson-Rossman, CEO of TechGirlz, one of NextUp’s partners. “Our programs inspire a love for technology in kids that will sustain them through their lives and careers.”

Creating IT Futures

A 501(c)(3) charity was established in 1998 by CompTIA, the Information Technology Industry Trade Association, as a way to help people improve their lives through IT careers.


We help populations that are under-represented in IT and individuals who are lacking in opportunity to prepare for, secure and be successful in IT careers.
