Laptop Grants for At Risk Youth

Laptop Grants for At Risk Youth
This program provides free refurbished laptops to selected college bound foster care youth and other youth under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court system. This program is a partnership between City Youth Now www.cityyouthnow.org, Redemtech www.redemtech.com, TechConnect Digital Inclusion Initiative www.sfgov.org/digital_inclusion and Independent Living Skills Program www.sfhsa.org . This program is made possible through a generous grant from the John Burton Foundation and contributions from Microsoft Corporation.

City Youth Now is currently accepting grant applications through mid-August and will make approximately 50 grants. Applications must be submitted on behalf of the youth by a social worker, probation officer, CASA, attorney, or other adult authorized by the Juvenile Court to provide services to youth. City Youth Now is selecting the recipients with input from the Independent Living Services Program and Juvenile Justice. CYN does NOT accept requests directly from youth or their caregivers.

The youth will be required to attend a full day computer training workshop to receive their laptop.
