In response to COVID-19 school closures, we offered a Free online Computer Science Program for disadvantaged black boys. This program was successful as we had 200 boys enrolled in the program.
To expand on the success of the program we are extending the FREE Program through the summer.
The average cost of hosting this program is $399 per student. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to support this program. Click the DONTATE button
It's the people that support programs like this that are the real heroes.
This FREE course is sponsored by Mission Fulfilled 2030 a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As black men only represent less than 5% of the high tech and STEM workforce our mission is to INSPIRE | EDUCATE | ACTIVATE young black males in technology.
By exposing black boys early to these opportunities we can equip them with the skills to attain high paying jobs and make progress toward decreasing the racial income inequality and wealth gap.
For us to continue to have the ability to provide high-level educational opportunities for black boys - If at all possible, please make a small donation in any amount by clicking the donate button below:

In my 20 plus years as an engineer. I've noticed that there has not been an increase in the amount of young black men entering high tech, computer, and engineering disciplines. In fact, black males make up less than 5% of the high tech workforce. There are several reasons for this, but I believe the biggest is the lack of exposure to other black men in these fields. I believe given early hands-on exposure to high tech, computer and engineering disciplines we can convert our black boys from being strictly consumers of technology to developers and producers of technology.
