Computers4Kids (C4K) is about computers and so much more. C4K empowers low income youth by bringing together technology and imagination through supportive mentoring, youth-driven programming, and skill building for life success. We provide a creative and safe out-of-school learning environment where local low-income middle and high school youth work with volunteer mentors and staff to build college and work readiness skills. At C4K, young people explore their own ideas, build skills, and gain confidence in themselves through positive relationships, the mastery of technology, and the opportunity to get a free laptop with lifetime support. Membership is free to Charlottesville and Albemarle youth who are eligible for free or reduced price school lunch.
Training and mentoring sessions take place at C4K, located in the Frank Ix building at 945 Second St. SE, a few blocks south of the downtown mall. Parking is free and refreshments are provided. C4K is open Monday through Thursday, 3:30 to 8 p.m. and Friday 3:30 to 7 p.m.
