Its true when they say that a picture is worth a thousand words! The members of the Zonta Unit Boys & Girls Club were quit excited when they were able to participate in the check presentation that took place between Boys & Girls Clubs of Tamp Bay and the Tampa Bay Tech Forum Foundation.
Through fundraising to date, the TBTF Foundation has funded over $1 million in computer equipment, software, infrastructure, labor and instruction in local Boys and Girls Clubs that collectively serve 1000+ local youth daily.
TBTF is dedicated to providing funding to assist with leveling the “virtual playing field” for kids of all ages and circumstances. TBTF is sponsoring the First Annual Be Great Film Festival! Members will have an opportunity to showcase their talents by creating short films.
Hello my name is Damian I’m 12 yrs old and I attend Zonta Boys & Girls Club. This summer in the computer lab I completed Career launch. During my Career Launch experience I learned how to fill out a job application, resume, and a cover letter on the computer. I also learned job interviewing tips. I got some free time on the computer to play games, look for back to school shoes, and listen to music on the Boys & Girls Clubs of America website myclubmylife.com.
On Thursday July 23, 30 TBTF Foundation members were invited out to Garry & Smith Salesian Boys & Girls Club. While at the club the TBTF members had an opportunity to go on a tour lead by students from the club. One of the club members Nalau T. gave a presentation on her business plan for Pooh’s Academy(Day Care). During the presentation Nalau spoke about her business concept, mission, management, marketing plan and much much more. The winner and finalists of the T-shirt contest was presented with the t-shirt that Devin designed, whichcan be purchased at Tech Jam! Devin’s club was also given a Wii. The evening ended with a match up of Guitar Hero between Ton DiBenedetto and T-shirt winner Devin Oliver. The rematch will take place next week at Tech Jam!
My name is Kimmia Franklin and I like the computer lab because… in computer lab my friends and I talk, play board games, do neat contests ,draw, and go on the computers.ost of the websites we go on are educational like fun brain, Fcat explorer, and one that is not educational and it is … Poptropica! Poptropica is a website where kids like me go on virtual adventures, in other words we can let our brains take a break from reality! In the computer lab we also play on the Playstation2 or watch movies. The computer lab is one of my most favorite places to be at the Boys and Girls Club.
