CMG offers several programs to serve the community. These programs meet our mission to provide opportunities for educational and employment success through bridging the technology divide for populations without sufficient economic resources, especially as it relates to children and youth.
Our unique flagship program takes students through phases of development and hands them skills in web design, videography and phone app development; and real-world experience in leadership and project management. This development makes them attractive candidates for internships and employment in the information technology industry. STEM Corps is offered as both an after-school and summer program.
