Our Mission Statement

Our purpose is to introduce computer education, provide instruction in computer coding and explain techniques to use for career exploration for middle school and high school students.

Our program will encourage personal growth and self- confidence as each student completes modules and competencies are learned. Students will be guided through methods to use for researching computer occupations and making employer connections.

Our program will provide opportunities that allow students to experience success in learning while developing positive ideas and beliefs about computer careers. Successful student achievement will also constructively transform their values about community.
