Student Programs

Tech Square's biggest unfair advantage is that it sits on an enormous aquifer of talent. Since our founding, Sandbox ATL has focused on connecting students to Tech Square's breakthrough companies. Our focus is simple: help students level up their skills and find meaningful jobs. 


Sandbox Academy

The Sandbox Academy helps students level up through hands-on life skills workshops, mentoring sessions with top notch leaders from various industries, and the chance to meet Tech Square folks through small-scale community events. 

Every summer, fall, and spring, the Sandbox Academy guides a new cohort of students through this accelerated personal growth experience. It starts with a miniseries of workshops taught by leaders from large corporations, startups, and consulting/creative agencies and is followed by small group mentoring sessions of your choosing.


Tech Square Job Fair

This "no suits, no resume, just you" experience helps job seekers find match with companies offering meaningful part-time, full-time, and intern roles.  At our most recent big show, we helped match 678 job seekers to the 15 exhibiting companies seeking their skills. 

Building on the success of the big shows, we're developing a complementary series of intimate events to give job seekers and companies more opportunities to become better acquainted. Why not learn what it's like inside a variety of companies in the role you want to play? 

Mark your calendar now for the next Tech Square Job Fair big show set for Wednesday, November 8.
