Mysecurekid is a global movement created to educate, inspire and promote online safety awareness for parents, educators and children while building a talent pipeline designed to connect youth in underserved communities with meaningful IT career opportunities.
Our goal is to create a safe environment for children online, and fight against cyberbullying, human trafficking and adolescent suicide.
Our vision to harness the power of education to reach underserved communities everywhere with equitable access to engaging IT training that opens doors of opportunity in IT, cybersecurity, healthcare and business.
The concept of Mysecurekid started in 2010 with our founder, Ms. Quiana Gainey.
Using her expertise in cybersecurity, she began to speak about cyber safety for kids to both kids and their parents at various events and workshops in the DMV area.
