Fifteen million children are living in poverty each year in the U.S. If you are born poor, there's only a 30% chance that you'll ascend to the middle class (and this number drops significantly depending on your ethnicity). Some reasons that keep people in poverty are lack of knowledge, opportunity, and job skills.
Our High School Virtual Reality Cybersecurity Programs target high school students in underrepresented communities (both urban and rural areas) to tackle the critical cybersecurity shortage by preparing high school students for cybersecurity careers. There will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2020. Our High School Cybersecurity Program takes aim at this critical workforce shortage by preparing the next generation of leaders to tackle this increasingly complicated issue.Our program is 2 to 4 years, where we are striving for 100% of the high students who complete our program will graduate from high school, of those students, 75% will pass the CompTIA Security + certification.
