The GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences in typically 1-2 week camps. The goals of the student GenCyber program are to:
- Ignite, sustain, and increase awareness of K12 cybersecurity content and cybersecurity postsecondary and career opportunities for participants through year-round engagement; and
- Increase student diversity in cybersecurity college and career readiness pathways at the K-12 level
The GenCyber program strives to be a part of the solution to the Nation’s shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to utilize their talents in cybersecurity is critical to the future of our country’s national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives.
To ensure a level playing field, GenCyber camps are open to all participants at no cost. Funding is provided by the National Security Agency.
