5 Saturdays
is a program created to support non-profits and other organizations with outreach initiatives into the local community. The program emerged from curriculum created by Dr. Dave Cornelius while partnering with Holman Community Development Corporation in Los Angeles to introduce technology as a profession to urban high school students. The program achieved success, as students were able to explore career-focused areas such as information technology (IT) and grasp life skills that included:

 

    • Creative and critical thinking

 

    • Effective communications

 

    • Agility using Scrum and Kanban

 

    • Root cause analysis using “5 Whys”
