Optomi’s Atlanta Team served PowerMyLearning to provide technology to under-resourced communities

The Atlanta office partnered with PowerMyLearning, a national non-profit that partners with schools and districts in under-resourced communities to deliver technology to kids who might not otherwise have access to a computer.  PowerMyLearning takes computers, tablets, etc. and refurbishes them with innovative learning programs tailored towards school-age children and runs workshops and other programs for children and their parents on how to use their new computers to be successful.

We spent the day at their warehouse assisting with a variety of tasks (broken up into teams) including warehouse clean-up and organization, computer testing and troubleshooting, computer and equipment cleaning, etc.  We were able to help them knock out a ton of work that would normally take their team much longer and hopefully will speed up getting computers into the hands of Atlanta-area kids!
