CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. At the core of the program is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, the nation’s largest cyber defense competition that puts high school and middle school students in charge of securing virtual networks. Other programs include AFA CyberCamps, an elementary school cyber education initiative, a children’s literature series, CyberGenerations – a senior citizen cyber safety initiative, and a Tech Caregivers program designed to encourage cyber-savvy volunteers to give back to their communities.
ClearFocus Technologies is proud to provide financial support to the CyberPatriot program as a CyberPartner sponsor. ClearFocus employees also serve as mentors to teams competing in the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. ClearFocus will also be providing support for mentored teams by providing team T-shirts and feeding the kids during their six-hour competitions.
