Program Information

BFIT is a computer IT program which will teach youth basic knowledge of computers. We intend to cover many topics and tasks which will give them a good jump start at a potential career in IT industry such as:

  • Knowledge of a computer  and peripherals (Monitors, desktop, laptop, etc)
  • Knowledge and functionality of inner components of a computer (hard drives, motherboards, processors, etc)
  • Research on how a computer works (binary code, circuits, etc)
  • Take a desktop completely apart and rebuild desktop
  • Installation of software
  • Basic knowledge of computer networks


While participants are learning the materials we are covering, they will get an opportunity to take a computer apart and rebuild it. Once the machine is fully functional they will be allowed to keep that computer permanently. In order for them to keep that computer they will have to rebuild another computer that will get donated.

We are currently preparing to continue this program remotely. We will have weekly Zoom sessions with participants who sign up. If you would like more information please contact us.

2021 Update

BFIT is starting its 4th year and continuing to grow. So far, we have worked with 20 kids providing them with basic knowledge of how to build a computer. They received hands on training of the inner components of a computer, and they also got a chance to build their own PC\laptop, which they were able to keep. Our biggest challenge, which we are working to overcome, is adjusting our program to be virtual. This past year we were able to train a few kids using Zoom, but it added an additional 2 weeks to our program. In 2021, we will be offering both virtual and in-person sessions. We have partnered with organizations to help us provide a safe environment to train a small group of 3-5 kids, while practicing social distancing, for our Winter Session. We hope to acquire more donations of computer equipment to train at least 10 kids in 2021. We also hope to partner with other organizations who would be willing to sponsor the BFIT program. BFIT plans to continue to reach out to businesses and hospitals within the city to seek donations of old equipment in need of recycling. These donations will help to give the participants of our program real equipment to work with to learn, take apart and rebuild.
