Why TechCORE2

The Rationale

It is well known that the Tech Industry creates many of the best jobs in America including median salary for Systems Engineer $87,100 according to INFOGRAPHIC OF THE DAY: THE BEST JOBS IN AMERICA  http://www.fastcompany.com/1579231/infographic-day-best-jobs-america).  Inc. magazine recently published in “8 Best Industries for Starting a Business Right Now” (http://www.inc.com/ss/best-industries-for-starting-a-business) that 4 of the top 8 top potential business ventures are technology related including:

  • Food E-commerce

  • Gamification Services

  • Agricultural software

  • Public Sector Technology

The repeated tragedy in America is that African-American and Hispanic student who are in most need of quality career paths are the least prepared to embark on technology job opportunities.

We will offer current industry technology training opportunities in an agile and relevant format to enable students as young as kindergarten to get on a path of future STEM success and provide the training and support to span elementary, middle school, high school and post high school pursuits.
