Computer Mentors unique signature program, STEM Corps, takes high school students through phases of development and hands them tools like Microsoft Office Certification; skills in web design and mobile app development; and real-world experience in leadership and project management. This development makes them attractive candidates for internships and employment in the information technology industry.
STEM Corps is currently offered to Hillsborough County students, between the ages of 14 and 18. Students attend Computer Mentors one night per week for two hours and engage in technology training and projects for anywhere from six-months to several years. Students’ development is supported with proven curriculum and experienced mentors passionate about technology and community empowerment. The more the students accomplish, the more experience and points they earn. Points can be used for tech tools and toys (including PS4s, XBox Ones, Laptops, Tablets, and Phones.) The experience can be used for life.
