BriteKids Mission

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.

The goal is to provide boys and girls fun, exciting and hands-on learning opportunities and exposures that they may not have had otherwise due to the lack of financial resources.

The initial programs being designed are centered around five main technical areas:

  1. Cybersecurity – the “Hack-a-mole” program is designed for kids to learn the basics of hacking and cyber security;
  2. Coding – the “Coding It without Knowing It” curriculum is centered around the basics of coding in a fun and easy learning environment;
  3. Drones – the “Checking on the Cows without leaving the Barn” program is where kids learn all about the basis of flying drones
  4. Space Exploration – “Training to be an Astronaut” is a world-class program at Space Camp/Academy in Huntsville, Al *
  5. Virtual Gaming – “Stick Fights without the Sticks” a learning and training program using virtual reality

*2 slots (boy and girl) have been prepaid for Space Academy for June 23 -28, 2019.

The programs consist of a combination of Summer Enrichment camps, weekend activities and after school opportunities. These are currently in development and are expected to be rolled out this summer and fall. We need your support to make these programs happen faster and spread them to the many communities in need of these programs.

BriteKids takes great pride in promoting and providing kids in the Blue Ridge area technical learning opportunities and a foundation in the skills needed for a future in the modern technology economy. We strive to provide thousands of bright kids capable of excelling in the new technologies but lacking the financial means exciting technical learning opportunities. Lots and lots of educational opportunities and exposures.

Our goal is to raise millions of dollars over the next ten years to provide the infrastructure for a hundred learning center filled with modern computers and equipment, drones, space exploration and virtual reality and a vibrant curriculum and world class instructors. We look to partner with leading commercial and education institutions and private individuals, volunteers and experts. We look to be funded by public and private donors throughout the United States particularly individuals who grew up in a rural community and want to give back to the community.

BriteKids creates a Brighter Future.
