Let's Close the Gap Together!

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, our annual fundraiser, and individuals such as you. Many of CfAL’s day-to-day activities are accomplished through the work of volunteers.

Support of all types and sizes make a HUGE difference!

Donate Money

In light of COVID-19, your financial is needed more than ever!  As schools move to distant learning, urban districts are lightyears behind. New Haven ran out of Chromebooks a few weeks ago. As a result, Concepts For Adaptive Learning is receiving daily requests to step-in.   Meanwhile, unemploymen continues to rise - adults and parents need technology support to building meaningful skills that will help re-enter the workfoce.

With your help, financial support will expand our reach to more families.

Financial contributions from individuals like you have enabled our organization to provide training and technology resources to more families.  Donations help school children need help in attaining better grades and a better life. Many adults can benefit from computer training and building skills that are used in the workplace.  Thank you for considering making a donation to help our organization sustain programs that aim to improve children’s academic achievement.

Donate Time

Do you have experience building computers?  Are you familar with technology and want to help others?  Your time is valuable!  We are looking for volutneers to refurbish computers to be donated to families and support individuals learnign new technology.

Examples of volunteer support will range from teaching computer basics and creating resumes to applying to jobs online, as well as assisting students with computer homework.  Familiar with computers?   We also need volunteers to help refubrish donated computers!
