CompKids Program & Student Ambassador

Students need digital literacy and current computers to be successful!  We see students who do not have the same access to technology as their peers. The ComKids program, established in 1998, levels the playing field for students by providing technology in the form of laptop computers and support in the form of educator mentorship so they have the means to succeed. Nune, a grade eleven student, gave a passionate speech how after completing the ComKids program she was able to use the computer to read books, articles and research topics to assist her in her academic work.

ComKids is a community-based intervention with a proven track record of effectively supporting youth to become technologically proficient, improve academic outcomes, build confidence, make better life choices and build their communities.
