The Leahy Center for Digital Forensics and Cybersecurity are pleased to host five-week and fifteen-week long internships in cybersecurity for high school students. The internships will provide high school students with the opportunity to get hands-on technical experience with a Raspberry Pi project. 

Champlain College & CyberTech are proud to partner with GenCyber for this internship. With funding provided by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation, the GenCyber [HR1] program aims to boost interest and awareness of cybersecurity careers and increase diversity in the cybersecurity workforce in the United States.


The internship will foster the participants' understanding of cybersecurity concepts and encourage promotion of the field within their schools and communities. Participants will leave the internship with a better understanding of the Raspbian Operating System, Bash scripting, Python programming, and various cybersecurity tools. 


The internships will take place virtually via inSpace hosted through the Leahy Center.


This program is taught by the CyberTech Awareness Program with the guidance of full-time faculty from Champlain College's Cybersecurity program.
