THE EVENT: Refurbish donated computers with TDI Connect (link is external) to support the Trenton school district’s computer-assisted reading program. Currently there are more than 250 second graders in the additional reading programs across 12 elementary schools in Trenton. The goal is to have every second-grade student receive a computer to take home to help them in getting their reading skills up to speed. There is a strong correlation with reading ability of 3rd grade students with criminal activity. So, boosting the reading programs of 2nd graders in Trenton is the focus of this event.
TDI Connect is a local nonprofit that refurbishes donated computers and laptops and distributes the computers to local nonprofits, many of them schools. Volunteers are provided a 15-20 minute training which will provide them with the skills and knowledge to load software on to each computer. No technical experience necessary.
RELATED OPPORTUNITY: PA3 is collecting used computers to donate to TDI. Please see more information here.
