Due to the wide array of professions in the modern-day world, there are many different opportunities for youth to participate in a variety of programs to keep themselves occupied over the summer and craft their skills and expertise in fields they enjoy learning about. Mohamed Abdullahi, a NVF student from St. Paul Public Schools has been selected to participate in this summer's GenCyber Summer camps.
The GenCyber summer camps are managed by the NSA and the National Science Foundation and are a part of the solution to the Nation’s shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to utilize their talents in cybersecurity is critical to the future of our country’s national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives.
In addition to the tech education students receive at New Vision Foundation, the camps will amplify their overall software expertise and skillset with a specific focus on cybersecurity. With our common goal of increasing student diversity in the tech world, we encourage all our students to participate in other programs to gain the knowledge and skillset which can be beneficial to their future opportunities.
