Dell powers up youth programmeDecember 2013
IT giant Dell is to provide nearly $2.4m to 26 American. organizations as part of its Powering the Possible for Communities Youth Learning Initiative.
The initiative aims to close the learning gap among underserved youth by providing technology, training, grants, and volunteers to organizations in 11 states where Dell employees work and live.
Partnering organizations will use the resources to support technology access, STEM education and ICT training for young people in underserved communities.
Organizations were selected because they share Dell’s vision of preparing youth for success through STEM education and the development of ICT skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and technology literacy.
Trisa Thompson, vice president of Corporate Responsibility, commented: “Dell’s Youth Learning Initiative is incredibly important to our team members and the communities where we live and work. We are especially excited about this year’s partners, each of whom embodies our commitment to using technology to empower children and enable the success of future generations.”
Dell’s Youth Learning initiative works to close the learning gap for thousands of young people across the US who lack access to quality education and technology.
