Our Vision

 

The National Center for Children in Poverty states that 29.7 million children - 41% of all children in the US - live in poverty. Poor children are overwhelmingly non-white: 69% of children in poverty are non-white. Specifically, 24% of poor children are African American, and 36% are Latino. Numerous systemic issues contribute to multi-generational poverty in the US, including a lack of educational opportunities that develop the knowledge, skill, and opportunity to attain careers in high-wage industries.

Spark Mindset is a social enterprise that gives access and opportunity to low-income students to develop technology skills in high school that will drastically reduce poverty and increase mobility in their lives.

Cyber Space Academy

Leveraging virtual reality and project-based learning, we are preparing students for the Security + certification exam. We are working to increase their readiness for entry-level cybersecurity jobs and/or college with the goal of receiving a degree in a STEM related field. We also give students tools to overcome some of the barriers that keep them in poverty such as a lack of knowledge, access, and professional skills. .
