Computers for Youth NY

Founded in 1999, Computers for Youth (CFY) is a national educational organization dedicated to improving the home learning environment of low-income school children. Our work is built on the belief that the home holds the greatest untapped potential for improving children's academic and life-long success. CFY partners with schools to improve the educational resources available in children's homes, enhance parent-child interaction around learning and help teachers make powerful links between the classroom and the home. Our computer-based home learning centers are designed by software experts and tested by students and education executives from around the country. Since beginning operations in 1999, CFY has served more than 20,000 families.
