After our visit with HPU’s Social Entrepreneurship class, a student and member of the rowing team opened doors to an opportunity for Technology for the Future, HPU and the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club (SABG) to collaborate and bring the children a few hours of outdoor learning and entertainment, followed by a great surprise! We are so excited to be able to partake in this event and work side-by-side with organizations that are so community oriented and promote community involvement.
In our visit with representatives from both organizations earlier this week, we came to learn about SABG’s programs already in place for the integration of technology use and safety into the children’s lives. We were thrilled to hear that the laptops given will enable greater opportunities for their summer programs and that they will also be able to integrate them into their already-existing computer safety class. The HPU students attending the event have shown both their excitement to engage the children and create community for them that shows they care.
When communities come together like this, the children we are able to impact see collaboration not just as something you do for a school project, but as a life experience that allows for creating a brighter future for all.
Excited to see what the future brings!
