In an effort to give back QuickStart has recently donated computers to the Boys and Girls Club of Irvine as well as the Hearts of Los Angeles (HOLA). Both organizations received used, refurbished computers from QuickStart Learning Centers. The computers were used to teach center participants how to use modern technology and a few lucky youngsters were even given computers to take home.
In another effort to empower those in need, QuickStart is working with NetHope to provide valuable IT training to aspiring professionals in Haiti. The training is designed to give these professionals the resources and knowledge they will need to help build a modern technological infrastructure in the wake of the 2010 Haitian earthquake. QuickStart’s own Mark Wheatley will be training a class of 35 in Haiti for the NetHope Academy September 19-31.
