Let's Close the Gap Together!

Today, with COVID-19 interrupting services provided to communities nationwide, we need your support to ensure that CfAL families have uninterrupted access to technology and training programs.

From volunteering to joining our board or making a donation, you can join us!   With you, we can close the technology gap and help families expand learning to their home.

Concepts for Adaptive Learning is able to sustain its programs through generous donations from foundations, businesses, volunteers, and individuals such as you.

Support of all types and sizes make a HUGE impact!

Financial Support

In light of COVID-19, your financial support is needed more than ever!  As unemployment continues to challenge many, adults and parents need technology support to building meaningful skills that will help re-enter the workforce.  Last year, 23.4% of participants reported that the CfAL Technology & Computer Training program helped to retain their employment.

Meanwhile, CfAL's Technology and Computer Training for Youth teaches more than 50 students each week to develop websites, podcasts, videos/photos, and even build and code robots!

Your financial contribution expands CfAL programs to more communities. Financial contributions provide training and technology resources to more families.  Donations help school children access distance learning, while adults benefit from building computer skills used in the workplace. 

Your donation helps sustain programs that support children’s academic achievement and help adults build technology skills.
