Scott Steward and Glenn Pereira met at a networking event at Roosevelt University. Scott Steward was teaching a two-week boot camp intensive where Glenn's nephew Kyle, was a student. Glenn was visiting from Australia as he was perparing to get his son settled at the University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana. Kyle's mother, Eugenie, and Scott worked together in Chicago Pubic Schools teaching students entrepreneurship and accounting.

With Glenn's IT experiene, and Scott's entrepreneurship expertise, the two decided to develop a program that would prepare students for jobs that don't yet exist. For the next five months, Glenn and Scott conducted research before deciding to launch Project Tech Teens.

Project Tech Teens is poised to serve more than 400 students by the end of 2014.
