 Circle of Giving  - It Takes A Village...

BYOC (Build Your Own Computer) Camps and Clubs is a part of the Academy for Technologists Extraordinaire, Inc. (ATE) a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  While BYOC started in 2014, it became a part of ATE in 2017 with a mission to build a pipeline of extraordinary minority youth for STEM careers.

BYOC (Build Your Own Computer) Camps and Clubs recognizes the importance and values all support that we receive from donors and sponsors.

We need your support to continue to help inspire students pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and careers. 

Camp BYOC relies on sponsors and donors like you to offset student expenses. Our goal is to build a pipeline of minority youth for tech careers, groom future innovators and provide real life skills to students who might not otherwise get the opportunity. Your donations no matter how big or small help us continue the work and move forward.

Over the past 7 years, BYOC has worked with approximately 200 students.  It takes a village to keep this work going to help our youth succeed. BYOC encourages you to become part of our village. 

Your donations benefit BYOC in a variety of ways:

- Provide scholarships to needy youth
- Support student expenses (computer hardware, software, student related supplies, Silicon Valley trip)
- Support camp operational expenses (supplies, marketing, facilities, etc....)

There are several options for donating and you can donate below.
