The Cybersecurity Education and Training Assistance Program (CETAP) was formed to improve the cybersecurity workforce and cyber literacy by providing cybersecurity education to every K-12 student in the country. Through a cooperative agreement, CETAP funds an awardee to equip teachers with cybersecurity educational curricula, professional development opportunities and classroom technology.

Project REACH - Project Realizing Equitable Access to Cybersecurity in High School (REACH) is a feeder program that connects K-12 schools to Historically Black Colleges and Universities’ (HBCU) cybersecurity and computer science programs to close the diversity gap in cybersecurity. Cyber.org facilitates the relationship between high school classrooms and their local HBCU through cybersecurity activities, classroom support, campus visits and more. To find out more about Project REACH, including information on joining the K-12 team, becoming an Outreach Provider and joining as an HBCU, visit Cyber.org/projectreach.
Project Access - Project Access aims to support the programming options of local and state agencies by offering cyber education opportunities for blind and visually impaired students through immersive experiences that are fully compatible with assistive technology such as screen readers or magnification software. This helps give blind and visually impaired students the confidence and knowledge necessary to pursue higher education and technology careers.
