Coming May 2019
PACT - Progress & Accelerated Change through Technology
Progress & Accelerated Change through Technology is a program to seed, grow and change young people into leaders. Our inaugural country site for the past 2 years has been Haiti. Through partnerships with subject matter experts from industry leading companies around the world, such as Cisco, we conduct technical workshops. The SMEs come from all around the world to grow young leaders in a technology.
The vision of the PACT program in 10 years is to develop 10,000 young leaders, in 10 different countries in 10 different technologies. We call this the 10-10-10 Plan!
The PACT program will return to Haiti May 6th - 17th, 2019.
Participants in the program will learn four integrated tracks about creating a digital voice network, securing a network, building & managing a Meraki cloud system and creating a high-level resume, public speaking & presentation tips. Each track will be taught for an entire day, with a rotation of groups (A, B, C & D) on each day from Monday through Thursday.
Participants between 9-14 year old will become computer programmers by learning code on an iPad in a seriously fun way. Students will solve puzzles to master the basics using Swift — a powerful programming language created by Apple. New in 2019 is the Next Level Program. Next Level participants will learn advance topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Network Programmability.
