Ready Rock Institute

ICIT is proud to partner with the Ready Rock Institute of Technology as part of our mission to “empower generations of cybersecurity and technology leaders”.

“Many children from low-income communities have little to no personal interaction with business or STEM professionals in the technology sector. The Ready Rock Institute will help close this gap by giving kids access to programs and equipment that will change the course of their lives and uplift the communities it serves.”

Parham Eftekhar, Board of Advisors, The Ready Rock Institute / Founder and Board Chair, ICIT

OUR MISSION

Ready Rock Institute of Technology, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established to educate, motivate, create pathways, and alter the course of the lives of underprivileged youth focused on STEM workforce and entrepreneurship. Our focus on both technology and business career paths (HR, Sales, Finance, Marketing, Engineering, & Leadership) exposes opportunities for students with diverse skills and interests, increases lifetime earning potential, and facilitates economic empowerment of disadvantaged communities.

OUR PROGRAMS

Our programs and courses increase the participation of kids from underprivileged communities in STEM education, business leadership, and soft skills by addressing several of the key factors that limit such participation. These factors include:

1. Limited resources

2. Fewer industry role models

3. Lack of access to qualified teachers

4. Need more hands-on practical experience

We give students the physical tools – including tablets, laptops, and curriculum to be competitive and successful

(Our Courses are powered by IBM P-Tech)
