Lincubate is a non profit which helps introduce kids to technology via hands on technical training and discussion. Lincubate serves Lincoln IL and surrounding areas. All of small town America face new challenges to cover expenses of aging infrastructure and work force. Tech provides an avenue to create jobs in a short period of time. The new companies we can incubate locally will provide a great tax stream for our community and new high paying employment opportunities. We can't accomplish this without having some tech talent that wants to stick around the community. Our goal is to take participants from introduction level to intermediate within 12 months, especially with the younger group ages 13-23. Our training focuses on teaching basic Information Technology skills to set them up for a career in technology.
We hold monthly sessions to talk to the kids about careers in technology, how they can get on a path to a technology career, and provide a lab space with equipment for hands on training.
During our Information Technology curriculum we cover computer fundamentals, computer hardware, computer software, operating systems, programming, basic circuitry, networking, server administration, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and basic business concepts.
