The Boys and Girls Club has launched the Faces of the Future campaign to provide children with technology resources and skills. Many children (more than 8 million) do not have access to a computer or other forms of technology in their homes. The Boys and Girls Club of America along with Microsoft and Comcast want to put an end to that through this campaign.
Faces of the Future
The Faces of the Future Campaign was designed to draw awareness to the needs of children from a technology standpoint. Since computer literacy and knowledge of other forms of technology are vital to doing well in school and finding and keeping a job, the Boys and Girls Club wants to provide training in different forms of software, hardware, online safety and networking. They also want to put technology in as many of the Clubs around America as possible.
You can see what some of the members have learned through the Club Tech program, where this training is going on right now. Watch videos and see digital photography and art created by members on their Showcase page.

We often take for granted how much technology we use on a daily basis. We own laptops, desktops, smart phones, digital readers, tablets, etc. Think of what it would be like to live without them. Think of what it would be like if your children did not have them. How would they do in school? What would their futures be like?
