Believe it or not, just like a winning football team starts building its strategy from the early plays, the tech talent pipeline is influenced as early as kindergarten. However, more than ever, educators are spending money out-of-pocket to provide students with the opportunities they deserve to succeed and tech-related purchases are some of the most costly. In response, the KC Tech Council launched the Tech for Teachers program and is now teaming up with JReid InDeed, a charitable organization founded by KC Chiefs Justin Reid, to provide classrooms with tech-enabled learning.
Last year, with the help of VMLY&R, we equipped twelve classrooms across the Kansas City metro with cutting-edge technology tools like 3D printers, virtual reality headsets, and programmable robots. This year, with JReid Indeed by our side, we’re set to make an even greater impact!
JReid InDeed, known for equipping and funding disadvantaged youth and communities, is bringing their A-game to the table. Now we’re asking you to do the same. By donating funds, you can be part of this winning team that makes tech dreams come true. Together, we’ll spark innovation and make sure that the future tech leaders of Kansas City are ready to tackle any challenge that comes their way.
