Since 2000, WCE has connected over 5 million youth to digital resources, empowering them to reach their full potential. The Greater Philadelphia Chapter of WCE is just forming to collect computer donations and recruit volunteers to refurbish computers.

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter of WCE works 1-4 Saturdays/month preparing PCs for shipment. What we do: inventory equipment, testing, cleaning of equipment, wiping hard drives, and installing operating systems and educational programs. Teens and adults are welcome. Basic computer skills are needed. All of our tasks except repair can be learned during our orientation.

Our volunteer events are attended by many high school students fulfilling their community service requirements
