THE STORY:

Short Summary
My Name is Prentice and I went to Fisk University to study Computer Science! While I studied my sister moved to Nashville to support me and during my sophomore year four of our little cousins were orphaned when their mother (their only parent) passed! My sister took them in and I helped her with them! They as kids do developed friends in school and began to get into trouble!

What We Need
I saw the need to get these kids involved into SOMETHING! As I saw them get into things as a result of their idle time, and we are from Memphis and I was the only person they ever knew to attend college! They were fascinated by the things they saw me do with computers! I rented an office and bought some old computers at auction and got them together each of them three boys and one girl with one of their friends each! They are the kids on the picture! I taught them thru appinventor to develop small games for android phones, and scratch to make simple computer games! With my own money!

The Impact
The kids were exposed to engineering and problem solving on an elementary level, and were inspired to want to seek careers in and learn more about software development and engineering! Kids in other countries are exposed to calculus and engineering in school, where our kids are not! I would fill this project is successful if I could keep one kid from ever seeing the inside of a prison! Our kids are affected!

Challenges
If I can create a program that can deter our youth from making bad decesions, by filling their heads with fun educational things I can make a difference! The kids are literally our future leaders, if we like it or not. The things that I can do with the little money I have is very limited, but overall I would like to see this go nationwide! I would like to create a non profit to allow parents to get there children into this program at no cost!

Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can't contribute, but that doesn't mean they can't help:

Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about this campaign.
Remind them to use the share tools!
And that's all there is to it.
