Amigos Support MATC Students During Covid

Rotary Club Amigos de Milwaukee After Hours completed their pledge of $1800 to support the MATC Advancing Digital Divide Access Program for the 2020-21 school year. This support allowed students without a computer or internet access to receive a Chromebook and 1 year wifi access so that they could continue their education as a result of the Covid-19 interruption / disruption. For some students, their only internet and computer access for their college work was at the MATC library / lab or a public library. That access ended with Covid-19. Our support and the support of many partners allowed students to continue their opportunity to learn during these challenging times.
Comments from students receiving the Chromebook and wifi include;
o “It has literally made my virtual learning possible. Without it, I would not have been able to complete my semester.”
o “I did not have access to a computer. It was difficult for me to pass my classes without technology.”
o “Without the chromebook, I’m not sure I would have succeeded this semester with all the virtual learning...The Chromebook has been an absolute blessing”.
