CyberPoint was founded on the belief that being a great company means having a strong community impact. That belief is reflected not only in the things we strive to do in the community, but also in the people we hire and the organizations we choose to partner with. We support our community through community outreach programs by innovating, mentoring, leading, creating and giving.
To CyberPoint, outreach is about more than just giving. Our programs focus on creating enduring relationships with the community and making connections at all levels of our company. We see this as essential to ensuring that we're giving back in the ways that our community needs most.

Since 2010, our community outreach program continues to sponsor a team of four students from Baltimore's Cristo Rey Jesuit High School through their Corporate Internship Program. Our staff created a unique curriculum for these students (who are normally otherwise exposed only to clerical work) that gives them in-depth exposure to technology on a daily basis. Our curriculum exposes the students to different aspects of the work that we do: IT, testing, software development, technical writing, and public speaking. Many of CyberPoint's people volunteer their time and interact with the students as part of that curriculum. Read CyberPoint's current Senior Greg Jones explain in his college essay Tuesdays are his favorite day of the week.
CyberPoint is deeply committed to supporting the Baltimore business community. By helping organizations though personal engagement and financial support, we aim to help spur economic development, build (and attract) Baltimore's future technology workforce, and improve the quality of life in our city. Organizations we support include: The Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore (EAGB), The Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC), University of Maryland (UMD), University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), University of Maryland University College (UMUC), The Downtown Partnership, and The Waterfront Partnership. Many of our people also sit on boards, committees, and task forces. They chair or participate in events in and around Baltimore.
We believe that art and design are critical to innovation, education, and our nation's future economic success. Art and design are critical drivers of our business, and we're committed to supporting initiatives and events that advance them. We believe in the STEM to STEAM initiatives (adding Art to Science, Technology Engineering, and Math programs) advanced by the Rhode Island School of Design and others. We support Maryland Art Place (MAP), the Kennedy Center's Any Given Child arts program (now working in Baltimore). And we've served as an advisor to a Baltimore-based program that's creating next-generation portfolio and arts assessment aids.
CyberPoint also uses art and design in its Anti-Malwear initiative: Anti-Malwear is a line of clothing and accessories created in the spirit of fun that hopes to raise awareness (and funds) for worthy causes. You can learn about Anti-Malwear here, or by following us on Twitter.
CyberPoint is about more than just corporate giving: we're working to build a culture of giving. Since the company was founded, we've looked for employees with a strong commitment to community and a sincere desire to give back and help others succeed. CyberPoint's Community Outreach Committee finds ways we can join together as a company to improve our community. Outside the company, employees give of themselves to help organizations dedicated to hunger relief, education, job training, housing, curing disease, preventing abuse, supporting animal welfare, and more.
