I enjoy reading about and being involved with different organizations that help young men and women get more involved in technology and the sciences. I like to help with codecamps but a part of my background is around security with Operating Systems and Middleware. Recently I found a US organization, AFA CyberPatriot, that helps youth learn more about finding vulnerabilities and hardening systems through competitions. Teams compete locally as well as the state level, and then move on to a national competition to compete for the national recognition and scholarship money. We all get busy in our endeavours, but finding a organization to help our youth, regardless of location in the world, has such an awesome reward.
