Learning and life happen beyond the bells of the school day and four walls of a classroom. We support and benefit from programs committed to giving students unique opportunities to learn and grow. Our partners range from students participating in work-study programs or creating their own initiatives to refurbish technology for others without access, to college classes designing new learning tools and other nonprofits serving after-school or summer students.
FEATURED PARTNER: FIX N' GIVE
Fix N' Give was founded on the principle of trying to give all students access to a computer and the internet to help facilitate their educational growth. Milan Bhandari, an Indian Hill High School Senior, realized that many schools and students do not always have access to technology. As a tutor to Bhutanese refugees he saw the need for technology in schools not as privileged as Indian Hill. Fix N' Give aims to bridge this gap by encouraging people to donate unused technology that can be re-purposed to giving all students access to the Internet and all of its vast resources, a fundamental part of today's educational environment.
Fix N' Give is excited to bring you an evening of stimulating leaders to tell their stories of success and upcoming technology innovations. Cincinnati is recognized as one of the major U.S. cities considered a Tech Innovation Hub. Come and see what is happening right in our backyards and get inspired to join and create! Join us on September 22 at the Cincinnati Country Day School Auditorium at 6:30 PM. Click the poster on the left to learn more!
