Voorhees College CECOR Cyber Security Camp (CyberPI)

The Voorhees College Consortium Enabling Cybersecurity Opportunities & Research (CECOR) Cyber Security Program was designed to provide academically focused students with an opportunity to explore their interests in the world of cybersecurity. Our primary focus is on students from the surrounding areas preparing to enter the 6th through 12th grades. 

DOE Departmental Cyber Security Program requires a training, education, and awareness program that develops and maintains cyber security competencies including threat identification and risk management throughout DOE Federal and contractor workforces that enables personnel to fulfill their responsibilities in protecting DOE information and information systems. 

Voorhees College will help educate our society through training and awareness to increase the number of knowledgeable and experienced individuals able to develop and maintain cyber security competencies. This project will strengthen high school students in their academic preparation for STEM careers, particularly Computer Science. This will increase the retention of students in the STEM fields that will ultimately enter undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools in Computer Science and the World of Cybersecurity.
