Mission Statement

Forrest Outreach Foundation is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through strategies that empower the economically disadvantaged.

Description

Click-for-Success (sponsored by Forrest Outreach Foundation) empowers economically disadvantaged students and families to gain technical awareness and skills in the classroom and in their homes. Elementary school participants attend a weekly after-school Computer Club. These participants are paired with community mentors that visit the families in their homes and, using a simple-to-follow curriculum, provide opportunities for the students to reinforce and enrich what they learned in Computer Club. Through Click-for-Success, students and their families alike are empowered with the technological tools needed to create a brighter future for themselves, for their children, and for their community. The experience is richly rewarding for both students and volunteers, with lessons learned extending far beyond the walls of a traditional classroom.
