A Plus Kids Organization is quite small, but for African immigrants living in Phillips, a small Minneapolis neighborhood, its impact is big. A Plus Kids provides education for adult and school-age students spanning computer basics to high-level programming, along with cloud and infrastructure management using Microsoft technologies.
The organization was built on the belief that a higher percentage of people find a job if they have access to the internet and all the additional resources the internet provides.
“Being able to offer an online certification-based program will translate into greater social equity for our constituents,” said A Plus Kid’s program director, Yusuf Waged. “They will not be dismissed or overlooked due to education.”
A Plus Kids is using Mobile Citizen’s mobile internet as a platform for delivering critical teaching, information and resource-sharing. For more on A Plus Kids, check out the full case study.
