Go the Distance with NASCIO and Fund the San Diego Futures Foundation
For more than a decade the San Diego Futures Foundation (SDFF) has offered low-cost computers, internet, free training and other technology programs to low income families, senior citizens, and handicapped citizens in San Diego County. In a community with 3 million residents, about one-third have no internet/computer access. SDFF's goal is to bridge that digital divide.
SDFF operates an information technology training initiative called Network of Emerging Opportunities (NEO). NEO assists low-income youth, ages 18-24, with hands-on instruction, certification, internships, and job placement services. The NEO project helps youth gain the skills needed for an entry-level career in IT, by providing training needed to achieve an industry-recognized certification and hands-on work experience. Join NASCIO to help support this program.
Race With the State of Your Choosing
