Submitted By Monica Alegre
Dell announced it has provided nearly $2.4 million to 26 U.S. 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.
ÒIn todayÕs connected and rapidly changing world, children are finding new and exciting ways to learn, inside and out of the classroom,Ó said Michele Glaze, Giving Manager, Americas, Dell. ÒOur contributions to these partners will ensure that the exciting opportunities presented by technology-enabled learning environments are made available to all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status.Ó
