Soar with a Surface Go

My students need a Surface Go and adapters to aid in research and college essay writing.

My Students

We are an inner-city magnet school in our district with a medical theme. My students come from all over the city, from all different schools, cultures, and backgrounds. In spite of the many obstacles, such as being homeless, my students achieve higher than all the neighboring high schools and have a 100% graduation rate and college acceptance rate.

Unfortunately, many of our students struggle with homelessness.

Our school is located in a low-income area with 100% of the students receiving free lunch. More than three-quarters of our students are from low-income households.

Most of our students select careers in the medical field. Their access to resources needed to prepare them for this path is very limited. DonorsChoose makes it possible for our children to have the necessary tools to succeed.

My Project

A large number of our students are homeless and transient. They struggle with getting work completed. They spend hours at the library using computers and internet-many times just waiting to get access. This Surface Go and accessories will give students access in the classroom, before and after school. Students can use it for research, resume building, searching for colleges, and college essays. This Surface Go will provide a safe, secure learning environment to work. They do not have to worry about walking home late at night in a city that ranks one of the most violent in the country. This Surface Go would be one less thing that a homeless student needed to worry about, and allows them to focus on the future and all its possibilities.
