GEEKING OUT KIDS OF COLOR
Geeking Out Kids of Color (GOKiC) is a member of a Place-Based Partnership in White Center, Burien and SeaTac with Southwest Youth and Family Services and Arts Corps, serving youth in three housing communities. They work “to empower kids of color with education in computer science so they can use technology to help make a positive impact in their communities.” GOKiC reduces the digital learning gap by providing culturally responsive STEM education through a racial justice lens. The BSK OST investment has allowed them to hire staff and purchase additional computers and robotics equipment.
