Volunteer Powered!

CyberSecurity GameChangers is Volunteer Powered.  We provide after school, summer camp, and symposium events for cybersecurity awareness, training, and mentorship to middle and high school students.  We introduce students to careers that defend computer systems and networks from cyber-attacks, breaches, and malware.   We do what we do because Security Professionals lend their time and talents to volunteer for our programs, summer camps, symposiums, and after school programs.

Call to Action!...  

We need industry leaders who have a heart for kids, experience in the cybersecurity industry, and insight into careers in IT, cybersecurity, networking and secure development.
