SELECT Programs, Inc. was founded by B.J. and McKenzie Hansen in January 2019. In 2016, while working on her bachelor’s degree, McKenzie started hosting project based, technology programs for homeschooled students at the children’s library in Little Rock.
After working with students in the community for three years, McKenzie noticed that many students in the Central Arkansas community are not provided with opportunities to learn effective and valuable professional and technology skills that they can use after graduating high school.
McKenzie developed a teaching model for SELECT Programs to teach students professional, soft, and technology skills through a combination of instruction, analysis, and application.
