Center for Urban Youth & Technology (CUYT)

The Center for Urban Youth & Technology (CUYT) is concerned with the following questions. How do we begin to bridge the technology gap in this country, specifically in the inner city area?  How do we provide services and training to the economically disadvantaged who may not otherwise get this opportunity?  How do we expose this population to the new technologies?  CUYT focuses on students in the ages of 12-19; those who are beginning to make decisions concerning career options and higher education.  Many of these students would not ordinarily have been exposed to current applications of the new technologies.  CUYT is concerned about the larger community in urban centers and also focuses on the needs of teachers in urban schools and parents.
