I started using computers at age 5. I took an after school class in kindergarten where we learned about Turtle on an Apple IIe (the precursor to the Macintosh). I learned to type in elementary school, and in middle school I was teaching myself how to build websites. Without that foundation I would have never been able to start this site that you’re visiting right now. Computers have been an essential tool in my education, and I have been lucky enough to have access to the latest computing technology throughout most of my life. Many kids don’t have the access to computers at home like I did growing up, and as these kids get into middle school they face a widening “achievement gap.” Computers for Youth is a non-profit organization that wants to minimize this achievement gap by enhancing the educational resources in children’s homes, improving parent-child interaction around learning at home, and helping teachers connect classroom learning with the home. They believe that this can all be done by putting computers in the home.

Computers Are More Than Just Fun and Games

Computers for Youth believes that:

a computer designed as a home learning center,for example—children can become self-directed learners, avid readers, excited mathematicians, and responsible citizens. Parents, meanwhile, are drawn in to what their children are learning and become true partners in the process.

That seems like a pretty tall task when you consider the mindless things that most of us use computers for, but it truly is unbelievable when you consider the educational possibilities that the Internet provides. With a relatively small investment, any family can have access to nearly unlimited free information on demand.

You can help enable these families by working for Computers for Youth – they have a number of job opportunities that look to be well suited for new college grads. The CFY Jobs page lists two positions for Master Teachers in Philadelphia and New York City. You don’t need a Master’s Degree, but you will be training other teachers for the Computers for Youth program. CFY also has two positions listed on Idealist.org that they don’t have on their website. They’re looking for an Executive Assistant and Office Manager and a Program Manager. Neither of these New York City based jobs are distinctly entry-level, but we think that they might be great fits for the right new college grad. Computers for Youth is very specific in how they want you to apply for a job, so be sure to read the job descriptions carefully.
