Youth will participate in an intense training conducted by Mission WV that will allow the youth to assemble parts of a computer while learning the basics of troubleshooting. At the end of the three day event, the youth are committed to attend a series of three Saturday workshops. These workshops will be hosted by the Mission WV staff and will prepare the participants to obtain their Microsoft A+ Certification. pon completing all program components, each participant will receive a laptop computer that will open many opportunities for the youth and will start them on a part in the field of technology that will help prepare them for a successful career in their future.
