This is creating an amazing burden and opportunity for educational institutions to quickly adopt technology solutions, or quickly accelerate their technology integration plans, and overall, be part of the COVID-19 Digital Response.

$15,000 Grants and Free EduTech Consulting

Team4Tech is a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit organization that provides $15,000 grants and free capacity building to help organizations improve educational and entrepreneurial opportunities for underserved learners.

Team4Tech’s ICT4Edu approach is based on research that shows that the combination of teacher training and educational technology used for interactive learning and authentic applications can have a significant positive impact on learning outcomes.

Team4Tech is now recruiting NGO partners for long-term engagements. They work with nonprofit partners for three to five years, because they know that sustainable change in education takes time. Engagements start with either:

  • On-site Support: 8 weeks of virtual preparation from 8 to 10 volunteers for 2 to 4 hours per week, followed by 10 full-time days on-site, depending on travel guidelines, and up to $15,000 in matching grants
  • Virtual Support: 10 weeks virtual support from 10 to 15 volunteers for 2 to 4 hours per week and up to $15,000 in matching grants

Please RSVP now to join them for an info session on Wednesday, June 3rd 7am – 8am PST to learn more about how Tech4Teach can help your edutech NGO reach more students now and in the future.

Apply Now! Deadline is June 30, 2020
