*Parents of Black boys looking to go that extra mile when it comes to their virtual learning situation, particularly within the STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Math) field, may want to consider offered instruction from an HBCU grad who’s about to expand his online operation this fall to a full time school.
Gerald A. Moore, Sr., a Norfolk State University grad committed to introducing a variety of technologies to Black boys, is the founder/CEO of Mission Fulfilled 2030, a nonprofit committed to impacting 100,000 Black boys in the STEM field by 2030. This fall, Moore will roll out an improved online platform through The Gerald Moore Technology School for Black Boys where course offerings include: Coding; Web Design; App Development; Basic Electricity; Automotive Technology; Google Docs; and Technology Entrepreneurship.
“[On] August 6, 2020, I resigned from my six-figure job (working as a cyber security engineer) to pursue my passion to work for the betterment of Black boys to rebuild the Black family. In order to bring into fruition the type of change I want to see for young Black males, I needed to truly embrace the vision of Mission Fulfilled 2030,” Moore said. “Considering that Black male representation in the Cyber Security field is really low, I needed to make an even bolder decision to leave something I love, for something I love more, and create that next generation pipeline of Black, male Cyber Security Engineers and IT (Information Technology) professionals.”
The Northern Virginia resident, father and newlywed is also the author of “Motivate Black Boys – How to Prepare for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.”
The fee to enroll in The Gerald Moore Technology School for Black Boys is $29.99 per month, but his Introduction to Computer Science class is available to anyone free of charge. Check him out in the videos below:
