Organization Information

Mission Statement

Pioneering Character and Technology Education Through Service Learning

Description

The WTA engages students, the homeless, the unemployed and underprivileged populations in technology service learning. They learn valuable technology skills while serving needy populations. They operate their activities as though they are managing a real technology company (they are...albeit non-profit!), thus gain management skills and job experience leading to gainful employment. Service learning activities include:
- Computer refurbishing: Pick up quality surplus computers from generous corporations and government agencies and place then into needy schools and families. Our volunteers pickup, refurbish, deliver, and train low-income recipients of computers. Others are shipped to schools where students refurbish and place them.
- Training classes - Training community organizations in Excel, Word, Powerpoint and other popular software applications
-Students in our project-based multimedia program produce web sites for organizations in their local community. From these programs has emerged a statewide student-based technology company called "WildTech Student Enterprises". The program begins by training teachers in project-based technology curriculum, procedures, and how to act as entrepreneurs leading self-sustaining student-based technology enterprises in their schools
