BriteKids Foundation

BriteKids is a 501(c)3 foundation designed to provide life changing technical educational opportunities to middle school kids living in the more rural areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills.

With the goal of providing fifth and sixth grade boys and girls learning opportunities and exposures that they may not have had otherwise due to financial constraints, BriteKids is committed to raising money through charitable donations to make those opportunities possible.  

Learning Experiences

BriteKids learning experiences are being developed and planned for BriteKids Learning Centers focused on basic foundations of cybersecurity, coding, virtual gaming. In addition, Space Exploration and Adventure in Drones enrichment camps are being offered.

These kids will have life altering experiences, have the fun of their life while building a basic foundation in new technologies and in doing so establish a brighter future.
