I’ve noticed that we haven’t been updating everyone more than once per year. It’s easy to let work take over and forget about the website 🙂 We’ll endeavor to update everyone more frequently.
The first big change that is happening is correcting something that shouldn’t have happened in the first place! In the past Computers for Schools Yukon has mostly been giving to individuals because the school board is more interested in buying Mac computers for the schools. It was explained at our Annual General Meeting that we have to concentrate on providing computers to larger parties who are better able to determine if an individual qualifies for the program. We also don’t want to take potential customers away from local businesses. So we will be working with teachers, YG departments, as well as First Nations departments to get computers into your hands. If you need a computer, let us know and we’ll try to connect you with an organization that you can get a computer from.
As always, if you’re interested in computers and would like to learn more, let us know. We’re happy to accept volunteers, and while you’re helping us, we’ll help and train you! Send us an e-mail if you’re interested in learning more.
