Is there anyone who I could contact about having someone from the store come to school or a community meetup? We are interested in Virtual Reality. Could Best Buy arrange a visit and short talk from store personnel or a manufacturer?

Hello there, UCSChris,
Welcome to the Best Buy Forums!
As you may know, Best Buy has committed to helping prepare teens from underserved communities for the tech-reliant jobs of the future. We are proud of how our social impact initiatives focus on this ambitious goal, but we know we cannot do it alone. Our work is only possible through a network of dedicated employees, community organizations, vendor partners, and philanthropic supporters.
We do this through a variety of venues, such as National and Community Grants, along with our Best Buy Teen Tech Centers and Geek Squad Academies. I would highly recommend checking out of Social Impact page on BestBuy.com found here to review the options we have available. Hopefully something there will work for the event you are trying to put together.
