Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is a 501(c)(3) foundation that serves as the fiscal agent searching for the funding necessary to support the science, technology, engineering & math (STEM) education programs of our 45 local BDPA chapters around the nation.
You can find us in a variety of other social networks that include:
I hope you find a way to contact us if you have time or inclination!
We are here on VolunteerMatch in search of brothers and sisters that want to support local information technology (IT) professionals and increase the number of historically underrepresented persons of color in Computer Science and IT.
As a volunteer, you would be asked to support us in a variety of ways, including: monthly presentations on leading-edge topics in IT; career transition sessions for members interested in changing their profession; and community outreach -- "hands-on" computer skills training for youth, working adults and small business owners.
BDPA is making a significant impact in the community through programs such as the High School Technology Program, High School Computer Competition Team and Professional IT workshops. BDPA believes that computer literacy is not an "optional" skill. Computer technology is intertwined within the fabric of daily life for most Americans regardless of age, sex, gender or race. Everyone must have more than a basic understanding of computers.
I hope that you take a moment to let us know more about you ... where you live ... whether or not you think BDPA might have a place in your volunteer efforts ... just let us know that we are not alone in our efforts to bridge the so-called 'digital divide'!
