Local Verizon employees participated in a volunteer day on Friday to

improve the state of the Tech Center at Boys & Girls Club of Santa

Monica’s Mar Vista Gardens Branch. 

It was part of the Verizon FiOS SoCal Experience campaign that is

designed to support for local causes, and Verizon and the local

community will team up to support three non-profit organizations in each

phase of the campaign. 

The campaign has already donated a total of 32,000 to non-profits throughout Southern California.

Funds will support Tech Superstars program: A computer literacy and

technology access and education program for school-age youth, especially

those who have limited access to computers.

Through the program, young people learn basic computer skills and

receive introductory to advanced instruction for a variety of hardware

and software.

Participants have daily access to fully equipped computer labs with

internet access as well as educational and creative computer programs,

which they can use to help them complete school assignments or develop

and expand their skills.
