In its efforts to help improve public school children’s education in the City of New Haven, CT the Wells Fargo Foundation has awarded CfAL with a $5,000 grant. The grant will be used to help sustain CfAL’s Technology Cascade & Training program for parents who have children attending the Fair Haven School in New Haven.
The program gives underserved parents technology skills, and extends learning beyond the 4 walls of the classroom for their children. Another goal of the program is to enhance parents’ participation in their children’s education at home, and simultaneously help close the “digital divide” in New Haven.
With this grant, we plan to give computer training to 40 parents who have children attending the Fair Haven School, and upon completing training, we will give the family a gently-used computer, which we will install in their home. They will also receive a year of technical support, all at no charge.
The Wells Fargo Foundation and CfAL are working together to mutually improve children’s education and strengthen the vitality of one of New Haven’s poorest neighborhoods.
A very big Thank You to the Wells Fargo Foundation!
