Thanks to their generous donation, TD SYNNEX enabled Human-I-T to empower 80 underserved K-12 students with the digital resources they need to succeed in and out of the classroom.
If there’s any organization that understands the importance of having access to technology, it’s TD SYNNEX.
Given their newly-minted status as one of the world’s largest technology distributors, we were thrilled when TD SYNNEX decided to continue cultivating digital equity by donating a meaningful contribution to Human-I-T.
Their most recent show of support couldn’t have come at a better time, either. With school back in session, students’ lack of access to digital technology has come back into focus.
According to the US Census Bureau, 4.4 million households with students in the US still lack consistent access to a computer essential to completing online homework, studying efficiently, or effectively collaborating with teachers and classmates. Yet, nearly 70% of teachers provide assignments requiring a computing device to complete.
However, there is only so much school work you can do off your phone’s five-inch screen before feeling frustrated and discouraged. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts to keep up in the classroom, students who lack access to a personal computer often suffer from grade point averages that are .4 points lower than digitally-connected students.
To combat this connectivity crisis, Human-I-T leveraged TD SYNNEX’s financial support to provide 80 underserved K-12 students with laptops, each equipped with a one-year warranty and a year of free, unlimited tech support..
Not only will these donated digital resources enable these students to succeed at school, but they will also ensure these students have the ability to uncover new opportunities going forward and unlock their full potential.
In this way, TD SYNNEX’s financial support has not just helped these students regain equal footing with their digitally native classmates, but it serves as an investment in the health and wellbeing of our communities that will pay dividends for years to come.
With partners like TD SYNNEX in our corner, we are able to create a more socially just, sustainable world, one where everyone has equal access to opportunity. To learn how you can change lives through technology with Human-I-T, please visit our website.
