Toptech Systems recently partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida (BGCCF) to create a technology room at the local Altamonte Springs branch. In 2015, Toptech Systems gifted them with a complete remodel on their teen room, including a state-of-the-art technology corner. Unfortunately, the teens have often found themselves only able to use the computers on shifts as the younger kids are being assigned homework almost exclusively online.
As a technology company, Toptech Systems knows the importance of early access to computers for STEM careers and wanted to extend the access given to the teens to the younger kids. Toptech worked closely with BGCCF to determine their needs and ensure the kids would have the best room possible. About 10 employees partnered with the Club over the course of 5 months to combine a small, unusable room and a storage room into one, large technology and multi-purpose space. The grand opening of the room was held on June 13th.
Eric Gasvoda, Toptech Systems’ GM stated “This is about ensuring the kids at BGCCF have as much opportunity to choose a career in technology as anyone else. We’re really proud of the work we do with the kids and hope to continue a strong partnership.”
