Virtual Technology Training Goal:
Due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, many school systems have turned to remote school learning across kindergarten and middle school programs. The 100 Black Men organization has recognized a need to assist students and parents in navigating the technology being used for remote learning. The Virtual Technology Training event has been established to offer much-needed training and guidance to help both students and parents gain skills, techniques and approaches in how to succeed in use of this new technology that has been thrust upon some of the most vulnerable in our communities. the program/event Availability
This will be the second time offering this training in response to the overwhelming positive feedback received from the first session offered in December 2020. The 100 Black Men organization is so committed to offering this help to our students and families that the 100 is also providing a $25 stipend to encourage students in the value of their education.
