Donate old laptops/desktops to help at-risk and disadvantaged youth learn Ruby with Ruby Nuby

From: Malcolm A.

Ruby Nuby, a soon-to-be non-profit, plans to teach Ruby/Rails and related technologies to at-risk and disadvantaged 9th graders. ?By the summer between 9th and 10th grades, they will be eligible for paid internships after finishing a Ruby Nuby Camp in the early summer, where they will learn entrepreneurial and business skills. ?Attending the Ruby/Rails portion of the camp alongside professionals and college students, the youth will develop relationships with possible mentors and future employers. ?In the evenings, the campers will attend classes on life skills and cultural events.

Your donated laptops (Mac, PC, Linux) or desktops and can help disadvantaged youths to:

- begin their training.
- enable them to bootstrap themselves out of the cycle of poverty and all that goes with that.
- help grow the Ruby/Rails Community
- become your next hire or the next entrepreneur who hires YOU:)

If you would like to donate a laptop or have any questions, please contact me. ?

Ruby Nuby is a member-driven organization dedicated to teaching the first year of Ruby Programming, Rails Framework and related technologies
to professionals who then learn better by teaching at-risk, disadvantaged youths and helping Nubies become professional Rubyists.
