Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation helps deserving yet financially disadvantaged kids access the technology and tools they need to achieve their academic & social potential.
By providing technology (in the form of brand new HP laptops) and Internet access to kids who might otherwise go without, we enable them to compete academically. We support educators and police officers to deliver programming that establishes healthy relationships with authority figures and encourages kids to positively impact their community.
Our Program runs from Grades 7 – 12 and provides kids with tools and skills to help them reach their academic and social potential.
We have assisted 5,000 kids and their families, with more new kids having started the Program in the last four years than in the previous 15 years combined. Currently we have over 2,500 kids in our Program, with a record 725 starting this 2017-2018 school year.
Our unique solution helps youth become better community citizens.
Kids, Cops & Computers program participants have:
Improved technology literacy
Stronger relationships with police
Greater community engagement”
