The technology tsunami is sweeping across education, at schools and in homes. Every day that passes more and more students’ schoolwork is being required to be completed after school, at home, on a computer. But what if the student doesn’t have a computer at home? They are at a disadvantage. CfAL, through partnerships, is extending learning beyond the classroom by putting computers in the homes of disadvantaged families.
On behalf of the CfAL Board of Directors, staff and volunteers, we are honored and thankful to People’s United Community Foundation for awarding us with a $5,200 grant. The grant will be used to help sustain our Technology Cascade & Training Program for parents who have children attending Fair Haven School in New Haven, Connecticut
The program gives computer training, gently-computers and technical support to disadvantaged parents of students in the impoverished neighborhood of Fair Haven in New Haven, Connecticut. Our goals are to extend learning beyond the classroom, to increase forty parents’ involvement in their children’s education, and to help eliminate the technology gap that exists for disadvantaged families, by providing knowledge, skills and renewed hope.
People’s United Community Foundation and CfAL are working together to build a better future for children and their families, living in Fair Haven.
Thank you People’s United Community Foundation!
