The purpose of The Gift of IT is to prepare inner city, rural, and at-risk-youth, college students, the underemployed, the unemployed, and the dislocated worker for career opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and green technologies. “The digital divide goes deeper than the lack of access. It relates to the ability to adopt, understand, manage, and leverage STEM as a tool to solve problems in the workplace.
