Working toward eliminating the stereotypes of young, Black men through #NORFOLK20STRONG
The Founder of UKC, Ateba Whitaker, states, "I am on a mission to support these young men through TRUTH STEM Entrepreneurship Club to show that they are not a hindrance to the Norfolk community but - the solution." Mrs. Whitaker continued, "Thanks to the Norfolk Police Foundation, Nauticus, KC Social Impact Lab, 757 Startup Studios, Hampton Roads Small Business Development Center, SVT Robotics, and the field experts volunteering to coach and support the #NORFOLK20STRONG to compete in the Conrad Challenge. Also, special thanks to the Conrad Foundation and their sponsor Dell Technologies for donating 20 Dell Latitude 3320 laptops, one for each participant, to help prepare for the competition and keep for good to use for school. Through the TRUTH STEM Entrepreneurship Club programming and preparation for this competition, these young men have an opportunity to develop and realize their potential through science, technology, engineering, and math to become change agents in their schoolhouse and community in which they live."
