Part of Connect-In-Place's mission is to raise money throughout the summer to provide laptops, hotspots, or other digital infrastructure to meet the current needs of students at low-income schools. With your help, we can expand online learning opportunities during this difficult and uncertain time. 100% of donations (after gofundme transaction fees) will go towards this cause.
Our classes are capped at 10 kids, and are very interactive and discussion-driven, to provide kids with a fun and safe space to connect with peers. We're also holding program-wide game nights, career fairs, talent shows, and much more! You can learn more about us here: https://www.connectinplace.org/
Connect-in-Place will be donating these collected funds to human-I-T, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to shrink the digital divide. Through a partnership with i.am.angel, they will use these funds to provide laptops to families with school-aged children living in federally subsidized housing. i.am.angel, founded by the musical artist will.i.am, works to provide opportunities and resources to low-income students living in East LA.
Each donated laptop comes with human-I-T's wraparound services including one year of warranty coverage and tech support services, as well as digital literacy training and assistance in signing up for low-cost internet plans - all at no cost to the recipient. So far this year, human-I-T has distributed over 22,500 laptops to low-income households across the nation in an attempt to connect as many people to the digital world as possible in the midst of a global pandemic that has made access to the internet an even greater necessity than ever before.
