Message from BDPA Richmond Chapter President

Members and Friends,

I enjoyed sharing our progress so far with theRichmond chapter. We talked about the three main areas of member benefits (networking, education, and community). We talked about some of the waysNational BDPAand local chapters such as Richmond produce rich programs to serve our stakeholders. We also shared exciting new changes to our on-line member presence spearheaded by National BDPA, and I expressed my commitment to make sure members are informed of all programs and services that will enrich and benefit them. Finally, we shared the status of our Q1 goal execution (making good progress!), volunteer needs, and upcoming events.

The HSCC program teaches high school students concepts like computer concepts, relational database design, web design (i.e. HTML/CSS, PHP, MySQL etc) tools, teamwork and project management. Our HSCC team meets with a group of dedicated instructors every week for 7 months. At the end of this program, the students are then taken to compete at our National Technology Conference for scholarships and computer prizes.

Multicultural Youth Study

by Kai Dupe

Yesterday in the midst of South By Southwest (SXSW) in downtown Austin I was part of a Multicultural Youth Study. I was invited by Maria Madrigal who learned about my work in education and technology with communities of color from my presence on the web. The goal of the study was understanding how Latino and African Americans identify and relate to technology, fashion, music and content.
