Paula Martin is raising funds to purchase iPads for use by low-income, first generation high school students to apply on-line to college and attain the needed financial aid.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2013 -- Paula Martin is the Executive Director of the Harlem Center for Education, a non-profit organization located in Harlem, NY. She has served in this capacity for over 25 years and has seen hundreds of deserving low-income, first generation youth access college, successfully complete college and go on to rewarding careers.
This project will enable Harlem Center for Education to reach so many more of these deserving youth in the high schools they work with. This organization has provided for over 40 years free educational services to these very same youth. Currently they are in 4 target high schools with over 1000 low-income, first generation juniors and seniors who have no ready access to computers or the Internet to carry out a variety of tasks needed for college admission and to attain the needed financial aid.
Access to an iPad would enable these students to do research, write their college essays, apply on-line to colleges, the FAFSA and other forms of financial aid, and register for the SAT exam. It would also enable Harlem Center for Education staffs to expand the services they are able to provide when they meet and advise students.
The funding required for this project is $5,000, which would allow the project team to purchase at least 6 32G Wi-Fi IPads for use by students under the watchful eye of HCE staff.
All funds raised will be used to acquire whatever number of IPads even if the goal is not reached.
Funding duration: August 13, 2013 - October 12, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
