For starters, ELiTE stands for Emerging Leaders in Technology and Engineering. So here's how I got involved with ELiTE. I decided (pretty random actually) to go to Ghana in August to the NSBE Ghana Conference. I had been wanting to go and had the money to go so I went. Little did I find out that some guys I know from NSBE at Columbia University were also in Ghana running this engineering camp for students there. So I checked it out and it was awesome! Here's some regular gyus from the States making there way all the way to Ghana every year to teach engineering to teenagers who don't get these opportunities.
Then I learned more. There are camps in Jamaica and programs in New York as well plus they want to expand this year to Tanzania. I had to get involved!
