Our mission is to ensure that every student has affordable and essential at-home technology and the training support to achieve academic success. Our ultimate goal is to see students in our community on a path of upward mobility through technology access, digital education training, and by providing exposure to workforce development opportunities in the technology industry through our student-led refurbishment labs. Financial Donations Requested: Our most immediate need is for hardware for our laptops, mostly cords and hard drives. We are appreciative of any donations to help with this cause. Also, we are always encouraging corporations to consider us for donations of laptops, and now is no different. If anything, now is the time for any company who is not giving back to their community in this way to consider this important endeavor. Technology is a must in today's world. The digital divide is hugely prevalent and must be eradicated in order for families to be able to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteer Needs: We are always interested in anyone who is willing to help us with grant research and grant writing.
