Computers and digital literacy are essential to the success of today’s youth, yet we continue to see students with academic potential who do not have the same access to home technology as their peers.
That’s why the ComKids program was established in 1998 to level the playing field for students by providing technology in the form of laptop computers and support in the form of police mentorship so they have the means to succeed.
The ComKids Program:
1) Provides brand-new laptop computers (and internet if needed) to students.
2) Offers comprehensive programming that compliments the provision of the laptop with police mentorship and educator support through monthly Lead and Learn sessions designed to assist students in developing digital literacy skills, and learning to use their computers in a safe and effective way.
