At Innovative Computer Products, we believe in giving back: In addition to being a retailer we also donate to the charity CFY. Any time a purchase is made for a desktop computer, we match the order and donate a computer to the charity.
A little about the CFY program:
Formerly known as Computer’s for Youth, CFY was launched in 1999 in one South Bronx neighborhood. CFY today is a national model for digital learning. It offers workshops that teach students and parents how to use the Internet to access online educational resources that promote learning in subjects such as math and reading. The program also trains families on its own free digital learning platform, PowerMyLearning.org, which helps teachers, students and parents find thousands of carefully selected academic activities, videos and games from across the Web that are designed to make learning fun.
Families who complete the CFY training receive a refurbished computer loaded with educational software to take home, along with assistance in signing up for affordable broadband and access to 24/7 bilingual IT helpdesk support. These resources extend student learning past the school day, improve communication between parents and schools, and more fully engage parents in the learning process.
Teacher training is another important component of the CFY program. CFY coaches teachers on how to incorporate digital content – including the PowerMyLearning platform – into lesson plans and homework assignments. This helps enrich the curriculum for all students, and gives teachers valuable tools to customize instructional materials for kids at different learning levels. With online learning activities tagged by subject, grade, academic standards and other categories, CFY’s PowerMyLearning platform is now in use in more than 19,000 school communities nationwide.
