friEdTech gives back to its community by donating our services to numerous schools with 80% or greater free and reduced lunch. Our efforts help teachers receive professional development that enables them to achieve their goals while teaching in virtual and blended classrooms. We offer:
- Free Professional Development opportunities, such as: scholarships to Google Academies, free vouchers, TCEA sessions, and other PD opportunities.
- One-on-one coaching.
- Help to support a student program that champions digital learning and creation for students.
We are actively seeking additional opportunities to support adversely-affected, diverse populations in need of support. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are interested in learning more.
We Work with These Organizations
The PRYDE Foundation
The Pryde Foundation serves students from underprivileged communities in the Houston, Texas area and in Jamaica. friEdTech Learning Guides work with students in an ongoing manner to help them learn industry level technology skills and achieve technology certifications outside of school hours. Events include a Saturday webinar series, a semester-long learning opportunity, and a Summer Coding Camp.
In addition to professional development, we also make equipment and monetary donations to support the Pryde Foundation.
Blacks in Technology Foundation
Blacks In Technology is a global platform for Black people in technology. We are "Stomping the Divide" by establishing standards for world class technical excellence. BIT serves members through community, media and mentorship. We provide resources, guidance and challenge members to establish new standards of innovation.
friEdTech will work in partnership with the BIT and PRYDE Foundations to provide ongoing technical training and support for identified students in underserved communities to help build skills that will highlight opportunities for students in the field of technology. In addition to spending time working with students in small groups, friEdTech will develop a curriculum that addresses the goals and needs of the identified students.
