  • InfoLink-100 Computer Summer Camp
The InfoLink-100 Program is a mirror program of InfoLink of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Housed at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, InfoLink-100 is an intense summer-long technology training program. Over the course of 14 weeks, the High School and Middle School students are given the opportunity to learn an advanced software applications, participate in technology-integrated group projects, and also apply their new skills in paid internships with local high technology and technology using firms.

We have had a very successful first year with the Infolink-100 Program. We have been able to provide the participating students with valuable job skills, experience working in team or group environments, exposure to professional environments and income, and a better understanding of the information technology field as well as their own capabilities and potential for growth.

    The 100 Black Men-WebBuilders Program is a collaboration between 100 Black Men of Western PA, Inc. and Carnegie Mellon University Center for University Outreach. Students from the 100 Black Men Mentorship Program work on World Wide Web-related projects.

    During the second year our students successfully constructed an e-commerce site to sell T-shirts of their own design. Last year the students studied the finer point of operating an e-commerce site on the internet. Under the direction a member of 100 Black Men, who is also an entrepreneur, the students learned how to market and promote their site. The website is http://www.exoewear.org
