I lifted this right off of the Free Geek website. In addition to building or earning a computer through Free Geek’s programs, K-12 students in Portland, Oregon can qualify for a free computer for community service work they have done for other organizations. Free Geek offers free computers to students with 24 hours of volunteer service.
Do you know a K-12 student who attends school in Portland and can use a free computer? Help us spread the word to parents, teachers and principals that Free Geek offers free computers to Portland K-12 students who complete 24 hours of volunteer service. Students can complete their volunteer service in any number of ways including in their communities, schools, churches or other community-oriented organizations.
Students should be able to provide supervisor contact information, so we can confirm the volunteer hours were completed successfully. Before getting a free computer, monitor, speakers, mouse and keyboard they must also attend a “Getting Started” class so they will know how to setup and use their computer when they bring it home with them that day.
For more information, or to input your request for a free computer, please visit our Plug Into Portland information page. If you know a teacher, principal or school director who might be interested in more information, please give them this flyer explaining the program.
This is a great opportunity for students who are younger than 16 and do not have an adult to attend the build classes with them (students under 16 must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the Free Geek Build or Adoption programs).
