This year Fremont High School will offer students from East Oakland, CA an IT Essentials course. In this course students learn how to work as entry-level PC computer service professionals by installing, maintaining, customizing, and operating personal computers. This is one of only two such classes offered in the city of Oakland, and it represents the first step in a larger initiative to make an urban school (populated almost exclusively by people of color) into a center for 21st century technological and academic achievement.
Many smart and passionate people have dedicated their hearts and energies to making this course a reality for the people of this community. They need your help.
To teach IT Essentials and prepare Oakland students to be A+ Certified, Fremont High School needs classroom resources. A list of our needs can be found at this link. Any support you or your business can lend (financial or material) would be greatly appreciated. If you’re not in a position to give, please take the time to spread the word.
Meaningful progress is in the works. We invite you to be a part of it.
