We strive to improve low income youth's computer and learning skills through caring mentorship, structured training, a vibrant learning environment, and access to a computer at home. The program uses computers as a catalyst for youth to challenge themselves, become engaged in their own learning, and realize greater possibilities academically, professionally, and for their community.
Charlottesville and Albemarle students in grades 7 through 12, who qualify for the federal school lunch program, are eligible to join our program. C4K emphasizes one-on-one mentoring and developing in-depth technology skills through project based learning and creative exploration. When students are not meeting with their mentor, they can access C4K's after-school learning lab 5 days a week for homework support, educational workshops, and other structured activities. All students in the program are eligible to earn a free home computer system.
Mentoring Program students can also participate in Teen Tech, which provides advanced technology skills, homework support, job readiness skills, referrals to paid internships, and college and career readiness activities.
All services are free and available year-round. Call 434-817-1121 to learn more about signing up your child...today!
