• "At #PowerUp.org we are dedicated to bridging the digital divide by providing early childhood-to-career programs aimed at inspiring and educating students from underrepresented and underserved communities to learn how to code and pursue careers in computer science."


    Our vision is that all children around the world—especially those at risk of being left behind—have the resources and the opportunities they need to grow up healthy and lead productive lives.

    Not every family has the means to pay for extras like computer science coding classes. Children on the other side of the 'digital divide' need access to be prepared to benefit from this education equitably. Join us to increase the number of computer scientists in our community.

      "My vision is simple. It is clear and it is the way of the future. 


      I believe that the future is algorithms and the value of children learning this skill to live better lives is underestimated.


      Capitalizing on the relationship between technology and education reform will help develop in the students the higher-order skills necessary to function effectively in the world beyond the classroom.


      What I love most about my vision is that it has great potential of protecting children from abuse and neglect and instead, give children a chance to have healthy and productive lives through computer science education."
