Behind the Scenes
At Pi-TaP, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2019, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress.
Pi-TaP.com Our Mission
We are at the beginning of the 4th Industrial Revolution where technical knowledge and skills are oftentimes the pathway to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness and to enter the middle class. Pi-TaP.com (Positively Impacting Teens and Parents) meets our participants where they are, whether a novice or graduate familiar with Computer Science. We provide a safe, two-generational learning environment for young people, their parents and those in transition. Our participants are from under-served communities who, by working together in a bilingual learning environment, develop in-demand workforce skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology. In support of that mission, Pi-TaP.com offers partnership opportunities to other organizations, and by providing online classes, professional development for volunteers, access to new technologies, and access to the Trailhead online community for youth, adult participants, and staff. A successful graduate of our program will have passed the certification test to become a Salesforce Administrator, learned how to launch their own business and have the soft skills to not only qualify for a job in tech, but be able to keep a job and achieve their potential.
Our Values The success of Pi-TaP.com depends on four core values:
● Equality: Empower youth, parents and other adults through teaching technical skills
● Positive relationships: Foster healthy and respectful relationships
● Upward Mobility: Nurture a mindset shift to become lifelong learners and producers
● Diversity: Encourage a diverse, inclusive, bilingual environment
