– Design Your Revolution –
THE IDEA REVOLUTION IS NOW
We are a team of consciouspreneurs building the school of future-equipping low opportunity students of color across America with the tools to empower themselves and change their worlds with technology.
Our pipeline teaches students to:
themselves as well as a local or global problem they care about
solutions to present challenges facing themselves and their communities
their solution into a viable entrepreneurial plan of action
OUR CHALLENGE: A BROKEN PIPELINE
The United States is facing a serious challenge with regards to meeting the demands of a fast-growing tech sector while a rapidly changing demographic outlook predicts that Blacks and Latinos will account for 42% of the total American population by 2040. Yet, current trends in tech sector participation rate show Blacks and Latinos overwhemingly underrepresented. Here is a snap shot of some of the challenges Enza is taking on.
2/5 BLACK CHILDREN ARE RAISED IN POVERTY
1/3 LATINO CHILDREN ARE RAISED IN POVERTY
THE BLACK GRADUATION RATE IS 69%
THE LATINO GRADUATION RATE IS 75%
ONLY 9% OF TECH PROFESSIONALS ARE BLACK OR LATINO
OUR DREAM: A REVOLUTION IN EDUCATION
We strive to empower youth of color with the tools, resources, and mentorship to access and develop their natural creative potential. We aim to change the face of innovation, and channel the imaginative force of our youth toward the betterment of society.
Where there is poverty, we see promise. Where there is disadvantage, we see dreams. We envision a world of equal opportunity where youth of all colors, genders and socioeconomic statuses are able to contribute their talents to the world.
