Maximizing Opportunity

Maximizing Opportunity…

Harvard’s Opportunity Atlas has found that without intervention kids that are born in poor zip codes stay poor. BYTE exists to intercede and intervene on behalf of kids in poor border communities. Our educational and development model place an emphasis on self-esteem and teamwork, critical pieces for empowerment.

Beyond that we work with partners in the local business and educational community to create exposure to opportunities that would be otherwise unavailable on both sides of the border. Our goal is to show kids success and make kids successful.


How It Works

Here’s a quick overview of how our program works and what we are doing to create the connections, opportunities and outcomes communities on both sides of the border need.


Roberto Burboa

Meet Roberto Burboa, BYTE’s Tennis Director. Roberto understands the risks and outcomes that a lack of opportunity creates. Drugs, crime and poverty are a part of the landscape in which he lives. That said he sees a better way forward and that’s why he’s here working with BYTE.


Alma Cota de Yanez

We work with the business community to generate new opportunities. La Fundacion Empresariado Sonorense (FESAC) helps us to run a binational operation with instructors and educators from both sides. FESAC partners with BYTE because they are dedicated to supporting the non-profit sector in Nogales Mexico and we help them achieve their goal of helping kids to see that their future holds great opportunities if they stay on the path of education. Partners like this open doors to the community, so BYTE can be a resource to inspire and mentor their youth.


Field Trips

It’s easy to hear about the world beyond your town but if you can’t see it it can be hard to believe it’s true. That’s why we regularly organize field trips to places like University of Arizona, which is a symbol for change and opportunity in the region. This wasn’t just the first high level tennis match these kids had seen, for many it was their first trip across the border into the United States. We love showing our student-athletes what their hard work is driving toward. It is amazingly powerful to show kids what they can become.
