The Verizon Minority Males Maker Program

The University of the District of Columbia has partnered with Verizon to host a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program on its campus. The first-of-its-kind, two-year program exposes young male African American and Latino students to technology, including robotics and 3D printing, and provides valuable STEM and entrepreneurship skills. The program also pairs the young men with mentors for continued learning and support throughout the school year. The Verizon Minority Male Makers program is designed to open the eyes of young male students to the many future career opportunities these skills create.

Gearin' Up Bicycle Program comes to Jefferson Academy!!

The Gearin’ Up Bicycles will be providing a six-week Earn A Bike Program that teaches essential bike repair skills to students. The program commences with students selecting a used bike to refurbish. Each week, participants learn about a part of the bicycle (brakes, tires, shifters, etc.) and how to make necessary repairs to their own bicycle. At the conclusion of the program, participants take home their newly refurbished bicycle as well as many lifelong skills.
Additionally; students that complete the six-week program will become Jr. bike mechanics with the Gearin Up Bicycles “Pop-Up Shop.” The Pop-Up Shop will allow students the opportunity to conduct minor bike repairs in the community; under the supervision of Gearin Up Bicycles program staff. The program will conclude with a program closing ceremony and a one-time Pop-Up Shop which will be held on June 10th from 3:00-6:00pm. DCPS permission slips will be issued for parental signature.

Get your application here! This will be a wonderful experience for our students! This program starts on April 22, 2016.
