Learning Begins With Us
Engineering, Computer Organization, Humanities & Optimization (ECOHO), is a 501c3 Nonprofit Technical College and Learning Hub dedicated to closing the gap that exists in the High-Tech Industry! We offer beginning and advanced education in Engineering and Computer Engineering to young adults ages 16-25 years in low-income and impoverished neighborhoods and communities. In an effort to create opportunities for successful graduates of ECOHO, we network and collaborate with top industries in the field of CyberSecurity, Programming, Aerospace, Aircraft Engineers, Civil Engineering, and Field Engineering, just to name a few to create a “Fair Playing Field” for our graduates. In addition, we’ve partnered with Social Enterprise Foundation, Corporation, a social service organization to provide emergency services for our students and their families to prevent major crises. The services and programs serve as a “Safety-Net” for poor and disadvantaged students and their families in rural towns and communities in Arizona and Colorado.
ECOHO assists high school and young adults realize their full potential with a variety of academic courses that are affordable, in-demand Certificate and Associate degree programs. Moreover, to assure that our students meet all of the demanding challenges that might face while studying at ECOHO, we work hand-in-hand with Social Enterprise Foundation, Corp to provide social services to meet those needs outside of the classroom.
LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!
Your generous one-time or monthly gift will help us prepare our students with the necessary skills, and competitive edge for opportunities closed to many People of Color!
Why is ECOHO Needed?
If you look at the percent of Black workers in the tech industry, their share has not grown.
If anything, it is shrinking.
Gad Levanon - founder of the Labor Market Institute at the Conference Board
