Mission Statement

Computer 4 Kids is a nonprofit organization working to ensure that

under served and at-risk youth in Yellowstone County have home access to capable technology

for educational purposes.

Look through our site to see what we're doing and how you can help in this critical mission.

Our Mission

We believe there is no reason for unused computer equipment to be thrown away when so many children are deprived of the benefit of this crucial educational tool. Refurbishing computers for a child's use is environmentally responsible since it extends the life of the equipment. But more importantly, providing a child with access to a home PC has been shown to increase educational attainment, increase self-esteem, and ultimately open the doors to many of life's opportunities.


Our mission is simple: Get as many good computers as possible into the hands of as many children as possible.

Description

We take donated equipment (old PC systems, hard drives, software, printers, etc.), make sure it works, load some basic software, and place it in a home. If a PC is beyond repair, any useful parts are removed and the remainder of the system is recycled.

Most systems go to children whose parents can't afford a new system. Some of our systems go to organizations such as under-funded schools, after-school care, and senior citizen centers.

You can find more details of our operation throughout the rest of this site. !

feel free to contact us if you have equipment to donate, need a PC, would like to volunteer, or have any other questions!
