Building Tech Savvy families and communities
“This is exciting and really needed!” said Alison Canning, Executive Director of Let’s Get Together! and resident of Kingsview Village Westway Neighbourhood. “I have seen kids typing up school reports on their cell phones because they couldn’t afford to purchase a computer. This will definitely make a big difference for them. Having technology in their home can also increase ease of access to applying for online posting for jobs, internships and volunteer positions as well as online learning opportunities for parents, youth and children together. We aim to help approximately 20 families in this round and hope the community members, both individuals and organizations, will consider working with us to sponsor the purchases so we could actually offer the computers to families for free. Our mission through this partnership is to create more tech savvy families and communities across the GTA.”
Making learning more equitable and accessible
The renewed computers from RCT, are available to low-income individuals and families living in Ontario. Applicants use a special group code provided by Let’s Get Together! to apply online for their equipment or attend in person to one of our info sessions. To be eligible, individuals and families have to meet the low-income criteria and provide proof of income. Parents or legal guardians may apply on behalf of a child or youth under the age of 18.
