From current students to retired astronauts, the leaders associated with the Naval Postgraduate School are providing an ongoing spirit of service to the Monterey Peninsula community.
1. Cyber Adventurers
Children are our future, and the NPS team knows that providing the next generation with access to appropriate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) training can make a dramatic difference in their options for employment. The Cyber Adventures outreach provides children in the area to fill the gap in their knowledge through independent activities in the local area through learning about the science of computation and shared experiences.
Encouraging ongoing education is a logical fit for the team at the Naval Postgraduate School, where free one-on-one tutoring and mentoring is focused on “all kinds of people”. Part of the value of this group is their commitment to ensuring that people from all backgrounds, ethnic communities and walks of life have access to high-quality opportunities for learning.
3. Astronaut Outreach
Children of all ages are delighted at the opportunity to meet someone who has actually been in space, and the retired astronauts that are a part of NPS’s Astronaut Outreach are glad to oblige. From visiting local K-12 schools and speaking to groups of all sizes to ongoing teaching, research and mentoring, these individuals are living their commitment to the community in an ongoing way.
At the Naval Postgraduate School, service in the community is baked into their DNA with graduates and current attendees alike offering their skills to those in need. Their commitment to education is clear, even to the use of a ‘.edu’ domain for their website instead of the traditional ‘.gov’ to indicate that the Naval Postgraduate School is a government entity. It’s easy to see the role that technology plays in this institute of higher learning, and the obligation to ensure that the next generation has the technical savvy needed to be successful in the world. At Alvarez Technology Group, we welcome the opportunity to support the community by providing IT services to businesses throughout the area.
