The Youth TechCamp builds on the series of TechCamps hosted by the State Department around the world over the last two years to increase the digital literacy of civil society groups. Youth TechCamp supports Secretary Clinton's 21st Century Statecraft policy by encouraging young people to engage and contribute to the digital networks and technologies of today's interconnected world.
Youth TechCamp took place at the offices of InterMedia, a global research and evaluation consulting group, in Washington, D.C.
