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.
At BriteKids, we believe in the kids living in the rural areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We believe in their talent, we believe in their abilities to be successful; we believe in their potential; we believe in giving hope for a brighter future; we believe in encouraging kids to steer clear of trouble; we believe in BriteKids being astronauts and BriteKids participating in high paying technical jobs; and in BriteKids contributing to missions of national importance.
BriteKids Learning Center:
We are looking to raise enough money to establish our first small computer lab in Hillsville, Va for 8-10 kids with an instructor and computer equipment.
We will provide at no cost educational training for kids to develop a basic early foundation in cybersecurity and coding. Two programs with IT curriculum and learning objectives are i) Hack-a-mole and ii) Coding It without Knowing It. Both are being developed for the Fall of 2019.
