Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County receives $10,000 grant from Comcast Foundation to expand its My.Future Technology Initiative

September 26, 2018 – The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County (BGCSJC) announced today that it received a $10,000 grant from the Comcast Foundation to help expand its My.Future technology initiative, which uses hands-on technology training designed to equip club kids with the skills needed to compete in a 21st century economy. Comcast announced that the grant will provide club staff with training and funding to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology the club can use to fully implement and teach the My.Future curriculum.

My.Future is a cutting-edge technology education initiative that provides hands-on experience and enables BGCSJC members to select from more than 40 activities to help them understand how to safely and productively engage online, and identify and develop digital interests – from Internet basics for technology beginners, to robotics, coding, game design and online journalism for advanced learners.

“We’re thrilled that Comcast is partnering with the club on My.Future,” said Kristen Cassady, BGCSJC executive director. “The Comcast Foundation grant will give club members the opportunity to interact with all sorts of technologies and develop skills that will help them succeed in school and, later, in the workforce.”

Comcast NBCUniversal has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs for nearly 20 years, supporting digital literacy and providing youth with the skills needed to succeed in the digital economy. In 2014, Comcast NBCUniversal and Boys & Girls Clubs of America entered into a five-year partnership to support the development and launch of My.Future, a technology initiative designed to teach Club members about our digital world and ignite their passion for technology.

Since 2011, Comcast and the Comcast Foundation have dedicated more than $240 million in cash and in-kind support to fund digital readiness initiatives nationwide, reaching nearly 3.2 million people through non-profit, digital literacy partners, including Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Comcast has supported local Boys & Girls Clubs for more than a decade, providing more than $100 million in cash and in-kind contributions.
