WordPress Jax Kids Meetup Building Digital Leaders
William Jackson, M.Ed. Aida Correa, Artist and Author
Youth, teens and young adults are involved in the growing
WordPress community as bloggers, content creators,
micro-bloggers, speakers and even developing organizers.
WPJaxKids is inviting students in Duval County Public
Schools, Charter Schools and even private schools to
encourage young people to have fun and enjoy STEAM
projects with William Jackson and Aida Correa. Both are
seasoned WordCamp speakers, volunteers and educators.
Youth are the growing future of digital industries, there is
no one country that has enough knowledge workers to
handle all the necessary jobs that are required.
The world is a knowledge run community not just manual
Youth, teens and young adults are beginning entrepreneurs
through technology exposure and mentoring. Many have
started their own online businesses and making profits from
being exposed to WordCamp / KidsCamp conferences.

locally, nationally and internationally. The growth is
transformative because youth are learning real world
skills and networking with professionals.
