Need help on your path to post-secondary?
“How can I make my university application better?”
If you’re in grade 12, you’ll probably ask yourself this question several times. TU20 has the answer: community involvement. So, how do you get involved?
We host several competitions in tech, business, and entrepreneurship that you can attend in order to show proof of your passion and dedication to your interests. You can also come to our workshops and school chapters throughout the year to learn skills like marketing yourself, designing a website, coding and more. Some of our members have gone to well-renown programs, such as Mechatronics & Software Engineering at Waterloo, Computer Science & Computer Engineering at U of T and more!
Join our Discord server to get notified about our events!
“What’s university life like? How much is the workload? How do I know which university to apply to? How do I know which program to study?”
At our University Guidance series, we answer all these questions and more, courtesy of people currently in university. We’ve had students from U of T, Western and Waterloo join us to talk about their experience and answer any questions you might have. See when we’ll be running our series next here.
We host the series on our Discord server, click here to join.
Our members have worked in some of Canada’s and the US’s top companies!
Knowing people in the industry is key to starting your career of choice. Whether it be getting a summer job, doing co-op in university, or after finishing post-secondary, networking is your most powerful tool in getting employed where you want to.
We always make sure to invite experts from the industry in order to give you the chance to meet and connect with people in the fields you’re interested in. After all, it’s not about what you know, but who you know that’s important
We like to think that it’s never too early to start following your passion and developing your interests. So of course we make sure those opportunities are available.
Have an innovative idea but don’t know how to make it a reality? You’re not alone. See how young students turned their creative solutions into finished projects over the summer in our TU20 Fellowships program.
Can’t wait to start your dream job? Why wait? If you’ve got the skills, then come to our Learn 2 Get Hired event in May. We’ll teach you how to market yourself and stand out to employers, then connect you with startups in Halton looking to hire young students over the summer.

I am very happy with my personal growth over the past year and TU20 was a large contributing factor. It gave me the experience and tools I needed to further develop myself for the future. Perhaps most importantly, it gave me several valuable connections that helped me land a high-tech job at Geotab for this summer.Mohammed, Summer 2017
TU20 has been critical in assisting me as I’ve been advancing in my career and education. From finding an internship, to connecting with local leaders and executives, to creating new initiatives, TU20 has been there to support me as my goals and needs have evolved. It’s rare for a student organization to support you through the evolution from participant to leader and I really value this experience.Denys, Summer 2018
The skills, networking, and experience I gained from being a part of Tech Under 20 has given me a competitive advantage as I prepare to enter the modern job market.Griffin, Summer 2016
