As members of the New York City tech community, we are committed to doing our part and promoting awareness around issues that affect our industry and our city. Recent research from the Department of Education has found that the digital education divide between wealthy and low-income families is staggering, and steadily growing; putting our next generation of urban youth at risk.
Fortunately, Olapic has partnered with the Silicon Alley Foundation (SAF) to raise money and awareness on this issue. SAF has coordinated Row For The Future -- for a second year in a row -- which will take place on June 4. The proceeds raised will be donated to PowerMyLearning, a national education nonprofit that helps empower students in low-income communities, together with their teachers and families, harness the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes.
