What we do

AIM removes barriers to tech education and increases access to technology careers.

Our mission is to grow, connect and inspire the tech talent community through education and career development.

Whether through our code school, our youth in tech programs, our leadership academies, our annual conferences, or our media outlet covering the Silicon Prairie, our job is to excite people about technology, inspire them to pursue an IT career, and help them navigate the tech career continuum.

Why we do it

More tech workers = more resilient neighborhoods, greater capacity for innovation and investment.

Technology—and the tech talent who dream, design, and debug it—is crucial to community success. 2020 has reinforced our core operating principle that everyone needs the opportunity to learn technology skills, now more than ever.

That’s why we offer life-changing tech education to youth and adults alike, to make sure no one gets left behind as new developments reshape our world.
