Meeting Schools' Technology Needs

Teacher Technology Support
Teachers are overwhelmed by the amount of work assigned to them. The amount of technology continues to grow and there is insufficient support for teachers to learn how to integrate these tools.

IT Technology Support
IT staff members need assistance to ensure that all of their school's tech infrastructure is operational.

Digital Equity
New Hampshire is seriously addressing the needs underserved rural, females, and minority students. ICT workers are predominantly white males and other students need rigorous technology courses to close this gap.

Technology Experience
Students need the opportunity to work in ICT workplaces.

What Teachers are Saying About Gen YES Programs
“We just concluded our last teacher workshop with the students and the feedback from the teachers supports GenYES research- what teachers liked MOST about the workshops were working with the GenYES students! They want the students to continue their learning in instructional design to support teachers in the future, so I have a direction for next year.” Janna Elfrink, Reeds Spring High School

“Kids know a lot, and GenYES is an excellent leadership opportunity for them that builds confidence. Even quiet or shy kids can be leaders.” Joanella Mendoza, Madison Park Academy K-5

“GenYES is a win, win, win. IT Departments get less on their plate. Staff get things fixed. Students feel valued and empowered.” David Berg, Big Picture School

“Student Tech Leaders have helped me become a better teacher. Recently, I had a student record one of my classes for PD. It was a huge help, I learned so much.” Megan McKenna, Park City High School
