The TechPoint Foundation for Youth and TechPoint partnership dates back more than a decade with both organizations focused on different aspects of the technology workforce in Indiana. As TechPoint works to grow a thriving technology sector and entrepreneurial spirit in Indiana, TPF4Y works to ensure we have students inspired to work in that sector. 

Since 2004, TechPoint Foundation for Youth has been giving the coveted Bridge Builder Award at TechPoint’s Mira Awards Gala. Each year, TPF4Y's board of directors selects an individual, program, or organization from among numerous nominations that has transformed technology education for Indiana’s students typically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields including girls, minorities, and those students from low-income backgrounds.
