How did you learn about EK?
I heard through a friend that EK was looking for an IT person and then I went to the OHR website to learn more.

Yes because of all the programs EK has. This is my first job and I want to put all my time and energy into building-up the Cyber VCT program.
Why is EK different from other community centers and VCT programs?
There is something different about EK… and it’s a good thing!
