Program 1

Student Information Technology Education and Scholarship (SITES) Initiative

Our major program is the Student Information Technology Education and Scholarship (SITES) Initiative. SITES is designed to introduce K-12 students of African Descent and underserved communities to the field of Information Technology through training, encourage them to seek higher levels of education by providing incentives through scholarships, and groom many of them to become our next generation of IT professionals. There are several programs established to meet these objectives: 1. Youth Computer Training 2. High School Computer Competition, Regional Competition, National Competition 3. Youth Technology Conference 4. BDPA IT Corps With these programs, we expose our youth to Information Technology at a young age and give them the skills to compete and succeed in a college environment or technical workforce. In addition, we encourage them to pursue a college education and provide support for the endeavor. We also help them in the transition from college to the work force via our College Student/Young Professional programs (not included in this business plan).
