The mission of ORCS is to inspire middle school girls in East Tennessee to actively explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. They organize coding and technology workshops for Middle School girls in Oak Ridge and surrounding areas.
The mission of ORCS strongly aligns with the focus of Y-12 Gives Foundation which works to improve communities by delivering human and financial resources in the areas of:
• Health & Wellness
• Emerging community needs
