The High Tech Youth is a network of afterschool studios that began in New Zealand and is expanding to include other countries in the Pacific region. These studios, their staff and the communities they serve are connecting both physically and virtually to share knowledge and collaborate on meaningful projects that promote their cultural and creative capacities. Staff from each of the studios in New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and Hawaii meet online on a regular basis through video chats. They discuss projects, plan collaborations and share learning experiences. An online portal (The Haps) has been in use since 2006. This powerful tool for collaboration facilitates communication and the sharing of resources, skills, and ideas.
