Youth Digital Growing
Youth Digital a growing company!
Chapel Hill-based Youth Digital, a leader in technology education for kids, has experienced explosive growth over the past year, and is on track to be one of the area’s fastest growing companies in 2016.
Youth Digital was founded in 2010 by Justin Richards, an entrepreneur with extensive experience in technology and education. Since its inception, Youth Digital has reached more than 65,000 students in over one hundred countries through their expanding portfolio of online courses and summer camp programs. Their courses cover subjects in coding, design, and gaming, and are designed for kids ages eight to fourteen.
After growing out of several small offices in the area, Youth Digital completed a buildout of their new studio space at 311 Providence Road in August 2014. Less than a year later, the company more than doubled its space to 12,000 square feet by expanding to a second floor. Today the studio is both an office for the company, as well
as a space for its popular summer camps and after-school classes for local students.
The company has made several key hires over the past six months, including Tim Oakley as Chief Financial Officer; Lance Philips as VP of Customer Loyalty; and Sally Lowery as VP of Marketing. In addition to these executives, Youth Digital’s team has grown from twenty seven employees at the end of 2014 to more than fifty today.
