Community Outreach

YODA JALC Computer Club Logo

Y.O.D.A. is a student club from John A. College open to any student or students with interest in computers and technology. Unlike its peer club, Logan Defenders, which is our cyber competition club, Y.O.D.A. focuses on fundraising events and activities that make it possible for the Logan Defenders to have the funds needed to attend competitions, covering travel expenses and participation fees. None of the great things that the Defenders have accomplished would have been possible without the fundraising efforts of Y.O.D.A.

And if that was’t already enough, Y.O.D.A. also gives students further knowledge and experience working within the community and increases the community’s knowledge of computer usage and forensics. If you are interested in joining it, contact the club advisor Kylee Williams.

 The following events have been either organized by Y.O.D.A, were helped by its volunteer work, or were made possible because of the collaboration of its members:

This group of gifted students work hard to make the world a better and safer place, by bringing awareness to technology. They work on cyber projects, community service projects, STEM, camps, and a poster project to attend and present at the WiCyS conference every year. This group is not only for women, it is their mission to improve the diversity statistics in the field of technology. To be mentors and to build a community for everyone to partake in.
