Did you know that Kramden offers several unique opportunities for groups who want to make a tangible contribution to their community?

The Geek-A-Thon is Kramden's signature event in which volunteers (geeks) refurbish computers following an assembly-line process. Volunteering can take place at Kramden, or we can bring our warehouse to you. Volunteers do not need to be skilled technicians (or have ever opened up a computer) as Kramden has created an easy-to-follow process where anyone can participate!

Contact us today to learn more or download this flyer to share with your employer! kramden.org/kramden/wp-content/uploads/Geek-A-Thon-Flyer.pdf

Great opportunity for middle school students who love to code or want to learn!

The Congressional App Challenge is in full swing and open to all middle and high school students across the Triangle. Deadline to submit an app is 11/1 and our friends at Fidelity Investments UXD are here to help coach students along the way via two virtual jumpstarter sessions. Students do not have to be formally registered for the App Challenge to attend a Jumpstarter session. They can simply join in, get a feel and then decide if this opportunity is right for them.

Learn more about the app challenge at: www.congressionalappchallenge.us/
