The Society for Information Management (SIM) is a professional network that brings together IT leaders to share, network, and give back to their communities. SIM’s RTP Chapter first collaborated with Kramden Institute in April 2008 at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and has been supporting Kramden’s mission to bridge the digital divide ever since.
“One of our key philanthropic missions focuses on education and support of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) related activities for local K-12 communities. Kramden offers a perfect fit into this mission by providing education and access to technology for underserved populations throughout the triangle area as well as across North Carolina.”– John Rinehart, SIM-RTP Board Member – Philanthropic Chair
This past Saturday, SIM-RTP sponsored another Mini Geek-A-Thon at Kramden. During the event, volunteers gathered to participate in various refurbishing projects and award computers to local deserving students.
SIM-RTP serves several local groups, along with Kramden, that focus on mentoring and supporting K-12 students who are developing their technology skills. As SIM-RTP Board Member John Rinehart explained, “Quite honestly, the members of SIM learn as much from these young people as they do from us.”
