Microsoft and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) announced the "opening of “first Club Tech Center of Excellence,” an expansion of decade-long partnership of Club Tech, a program to bring technology access and skills training to children across United States. First Club Tech Center of Excellence opened at the Children’s Aid Society Dunlevy Milbank Boys & Girls Club in Harlem borough of New York, location where two organizations first launched Club Tech with Bill Gates and Hillary Clinton 10 years ago. Club Tech Centers of Excellence represent latest evolution of Club Tech, a BGCA program initiated by a $100 million donation from Microsoft in 2000 to provide software, training & development of a digital literacy curriculum. Currently, nearly 1 million kids and teens participate in the Club Tech program every year at more than 3,600 Boys & Girls Clubs around the world. Club Tech Centers of Excellence serve as shining examples of possibilities of a world with state-of-the-art technology. They incorporate latest Microsoft software, freshly designed space conducive for creative & collaborative work, and an expansive Club Tech curriculum such as newly added robotics programming and game development," writes Microsoft.
