Boys and Girls Club in Lynchburg Gets Computer Lab
Lynchburg, VA - If you have a computer at home, consider yourself lucky. This day and age we depend on them, and our kids need them to get ahead in school.
But many at risk children are at a big disadvantage because they don't have access to that technology.
A company called GTECH Corporation has been doing something about that for years through a program called After School Advantage. The newest computer center opened Thursday at the Boys and Girls Club of Lynchburg.
"We want to make sure that we offer kids the best educational opportunities during the summer and after school. And now G Tech has offered us this beautiful computer lab that will integrate into our educational program," said Mark Sheehan.
This new After School Advantage lab has 10 computers.
