6 Month Update

Byte Back's fiscal year has changed. Here are a couple highlights from July-December 2017. We'll be back in spring 2019 with a full 2018 Annual Report.

We meet people where they are -
in their skill level and in their neighborhoods. People who need our services are moving out of DC for affordable housing. That's why we're proud of our October 2017 expansion to put tech within reach in Prince George's County, MD.

EPIC (Education Partnership for IT Careers) prepares students for a CompTIA A+ certification and career in IT.

Our students are not ready to give up.
