donateNYC encourages New Yorkers to support these nonprofit partners in their important reuse activities and social missions:
PowerMyLearning is a national nonprofit organization committed to ensuring that all children are able to power their learning through a combination of technology and the people who matter most to their success - parents and teachers. PowerMyLearning’s mission is to help students in low-income communities, together with their teachers and families, harness the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes.
In New York City, PowerMyLearning has partnered with more than 100 schools and served more than 100,000 students, families, and teachers since 1999. Our program supports schools through professional development and family engagement services. Our professional development helps educators integrate new instructional approaches and deepen school-home connections. Our family engagement services empower parents to become stronger learning partners for their children, and also provides families with free home learning center computers. This comprehensive approach helps students take full ownership of their learning and puts them on the path to academic and lifelong success.
donateNYC Partner Fact:In 2015, PowerMyLearning provided more than 1,400 NYC families with a free refurbished home computer, preventing 13,000 pounds of equipment from entering the waste stream.
