Todd-Tech-Talk expanded to TEAMTASTIC
with our fantastic team!
- Communities: Looking for equality and diversity, we are a team to help with the communities by spreading technology and education among underserved populations.
- Technology: By the US Census Bureau Survey in April 2020, 4.4 million households with students don’t have consistent access to a computer. Lack of technology resources or education is one of the biggest challenges to stop poverty.
Let’s brighten the world by sharing what we’ve learned and giving what we’ve earned. We are stronger together!
— Todd Zhou, Founder & President
[ Founded as Todd-Tech-Talk Organization. After the team expanded, we call it TEAMTASTIC, a fantastic team! ]
