PBDA students delivered iPads and Headphones to the children at the YMCA Aftercare program today. This gift was made possible through the efforts of our students who participated in the Philanthropy Tank last spring. The students presented their proposal to get funding for the iPads and headphones that allow the children at the aftercare program to enjoy virtual story time.
While volunteering to serve as after-school tutors, our students had the idea that using iPads to record themselves reading storybooks would allow the children at the YMCA to hear the stories any time. Funding was granted and the iPads are now in use, even when our students can’t be present.
