Mission Statement

We strive to improve low income youth's computer and learning skills through caring mentorship, structured training, a vibrant learning environment, and access to a computer at home. The program uses computers as a catalyst for youth to challenge themselves, become engaged in their own learning, and realize greater possibilities academically, professionally, and for their community.

Description

Computers4Kids (C4K) provides after-school mentoring, technology training, and technology access to low-income middle and high school students. Students take advantage of access to an independent computer learning lab, a refurbished home computer, educational workshops, and one-on-one mentoring. All services are free. Students meet with their mentor one hour/week for nine months, and design technology projects based on their own interests. Through this process, students acquire the technology skills needed to obtain the nationally recognized Tech Yes Student Technology Literacy Certification. Once a year, C4K holds a graduation ceremony to honor the significant accomplishments of these students, and the invaluable contributions provided by their mentors.
