Helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible and productive society

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations, providing programs for young people that build character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship and develops personal fitness. For more than
100 years, Boy Scouts of America has helped build future leaders by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.

Over the past decade, university enrollment in IT-related fields has decreased by over 60%, leaving companies to invest more and more resources into recruiting qualified candidates to fill IT positions. These positions are numerous too: over 750,000 tech jobs are projected to be created from 2010–2020. So while the demand for IT workers has been on the rise every year for the last decade, the number of students graduating with computer related degrees has decreased significantly.

To address this trend TCS has begun a student technology awareness program named goIT. The program provides students with in-school IT career workshops, in-school technology awareness workshops and a three-day hands-on technical summer camp aimed at getting students interested in IT careers.

goIT is available to high-school students in the Greater Cincinnati region and is based out of TCS’ North American software delivery center ‘Seven Hills Park’, located in Milford, OH.

The goIT summer camp is an in-depth technology oriented series of workshops culminating in a Parent/Student award ceremony. The Spy Games theme for this year’s camp will allow students to work with innovative technologies to create applications and build programmable robots. Using these tools, students will gain exposure to the global IT environment, learn security best practices, and collaborate in teams to solve critical thinking challenges in a fast-paced and informative setting. Participation is free to all students, with materials and food provided by TCS at no cost to the student.
