Vancouver Technical Secondary: Mobile Tech Club  $25,000

Our purpose is to provide access to technology to students in need for remote learning opportunities during COVID-19. We want to ensure students are connected and engaged to our school community through this hybrid model which includes face to face as well as online learning.

We would like to purchase 30 laptops for students to support vulnerable students in completing graduation requirements and educational goals. We have 80 students in need at our school and we are not able to meet the current demand for devices required to support learning at home and at school.

We have created a list of a families in need and they will be issued a laptop for use this school year. Regardless of required online learning component moving forward, we will continue to distribute technology to families/students in need in years to come.

For a decade, Adopt-a-School's primary focus has been on ensuring that students aren’t hungry, are clothed and have learning experiences that will enable them to fulfill their potential. The Vancouver Sun and its readers recognized and responded to the pressing needs of children and youth. Since 2011, readers have recognized how hard it is to learn when you’re hungry and have donated around $6.5 million to the Adopt-a-School campaigns.

But as COVID has highlighted, learning is harder still without the necessary technology and tools. During the pandemic, more than ever, children and youth are suffering with anxiety and depression.  They need safe spaces to go and schools can be that. And if schools are forced to close again, how many families won’t have what their children need to Zoom to class or do their homework?

The applications here are requests for technology and literacy tools to help support the students' education. Not as urgent as food security, perhaps, but equally necessary for the ongoing development of these children.

Any designated donations received for these technology and literacy programs will be disbursed to assist the schools with their needs.
