Building the TECH Pipeline

The Road to Inclusion

You teach class

Provide Mentorship

We provide :




100 new students in 2018





This work is vital to growing the talent pool that Iowa lacks for jobs in STEM fields and we need more of it.


Our Mission it to challenge, inspire and teach technology skills to students with potential - empowering refugee and undeserved youth to achieve success, garner influence and gain stability in their families and communities.  


Des Monies is fortunate to be the home of community with an abundance of technology and innovation. Business and community leaders put an emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education which greatly contributes to  the startup culture and our technological advancements. We want to see that same emphasis made in each community, across socioeconomic levels, race and gender.  


As we continue to discuss innovation, my hope is that we continue to realize that diversity compliments innovation. Innovation can continue to flourish by having different perspectives present and engaged – that means individuals of different race, ethnic background, gender, age, income level, rural, urban and more.
