Changing Expectations



Mission Statement

Changing Expectations mission is to provide the highest impact computer coding programs to inspire Black and Hispanic youth to pursue computing careers. Our programs are designed to study and increase Black and Hispanic students’ interest, engagement, learning, knowledge, and intentions to persist in computer science education and careers, including artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. In support of our mission, we provide these IT support services by creating work-based learning opportunities through a Paid Pre-Apprenticeship for Black Youth.  We focus our work on reaching out to young people who might otherwise not have access to quality computer science education programs to close the opportunity gaps they face.
