Since its inception in 2003, the Ed Tech Foundation has helped young people at more than 90 schools, community centers, and non-profits in the WNY area.
Prior to Ed Tech Day, any site that has registered to be a Ed Tech Day recipient, will be visited by an Ed Tech team leader. The team leader will do a complete site evaluation and determine a scope of work for the actual Ed Tech Day. After this the team leader reports back to the Board of Directors with the site's needs and desires. The Board will them determine what they can provide for the site in regards to hardware and IT personnel. We do our best to meet the needs of all sites.
On Ed Tech Day, teams of volunteers go into each site. The teams of volunteers use equipment that has been donated by local businesses or individuals or new equipment that has been purchased through the fundraising efforts of the foundation. The volunteers work together to give each location a "technology make over". They setup new computers, labs, printers, scanners, networking equipment, servers, install wiring and other technology to give the children access to modern day technology and improve their skill set.
For Ed Tech Day we need volunteers of all skill sets not just IT Professionals. There are jobs for everyone. Volunteer NOW!
