Imagine being an ambitious high school or college student without access to a computer amidst the pandemic and unable to use a library, rec center, school, or youth development program computer due to stay at home orders!? Kevin is among the fortunate few who through us and others, pulling for him, has a good chance of making it now through the school shutdown: continue his studies, communicate online with his tutor, continue in his college prep workshop, search for colleges and scholarships. What an empowering tool, a basic necessity in the educational system today. Where would he be without it?!
His good fortune includes not only the iMac and the college prep program, but also a mentor who is a program alum, who 10 years ago followed a vocational track, now successful in the IT field, and purchased a home for his family! That’s the upward mobility we’re talking about that “takes a village” to bring that ambition and talent to fruition.
Now do you get the picture? Kevin is among the many students struggling to stay on course with schoolwork and couldn’t without access to the technology; his is a vastly different life from his wealthier peers who not only have access to their classes online, but also have parents receiving pitches for online acting classes, music lessons, tutoring, on-line read-alouds, science & technology websites… is the photo becoming more heartwarming for you as well, knowing what a difference that little old iMac will make in his life… someone else’s trade-in gets a new life, and gives a new life. Thanks to our alchemist Mac wizard we provided 3 students and a tutor with iMacs.
All Out for Change® is committed to helping students like Kevin faced with obstacles to upward mobility due to financial disadvantage (the socio-economic conundrum tragically built into our country’s educational system).
