League Club Supports Computer Lab for Under-Resourced Students
$20K Grant provides computer lab for New Horizons of SWFL Students
Naples, FL—July 27, 2021—New Horizons of Southwest Florida (newhorizonsofswfl.org) has received $20K in funding from the League Club. The grant will allow New Horizon of SWFL to purchase laptops for a computer lab at its tutoring and mentoring programs for under-resourced students during the 2021-22 school year.
Throughout the year, New Horizons of SWFL partners with community volunteers to provide education, mentoring and character-building experiences to qualified K-12 students in Lee and Collier counties. Among New Horizons of SWFL’s students are elementary-aged students who require additional help to understand their school assignments. With the funds from this grant, New Horizons of SWFL can deliver its personalized learning software to students in the computer lab.
Each day at Super Kids Club (K-5th grade), students receive 45 minutes of instruction in the computer lab using software that provides an assessment of students’ learning and then develops individualized instructional lessons to remediate areas of weakness. These resources ultimately help hundreds of students to graduate from high school with a plan for the future.
