Oakland Military Institute Receives $100,000 Project Connect Donation From Sprint To Help Youth Succeed In Digital World

Stocks in this article: S

Some 120 Bay Area students who might otherwise be ill-equipped to navigate and thrive in today’s online world will receive the educational tools they need through the Sprint Project Connect program. Sprint will donate 130 Samsung Chromebook laptops, wireless service and technology support to enable sixth-grade students and their teachers at Oakland Military Institute (OMI) to claim a richer learning experience that spans the “digital divide.”

“More than ever, the world calls us to use the power of the Internet and digital technologies in many areas of our lives,” said Ralph Reid, vice president of corporate relations at Sprint. “Students without the economic means to fully participate in the digital realm can be at a severe disadvantage in working toward a better future. Sprint is proud to provide the equipment, technological solutions and resources these students and teachers need to access the most current educational resources available and to achieve their highest educational goals.”

Located in Oakland, Calif., OMI is a racially diverse college preparatory academy for sixth through twelfth graders and is known for its demanding academic program that includes language arts, math, science and history, as well as world languages, leadership and physical fitness training. About 83 percent of the students qualify as economically disadvantaged, and more than 43 percent of students are learning English as a secondary language.

“Oakland Military Institute is extremely grateful for Sprint’s generosity and for this opportunity to give our sixth grade teachers and students a robust teaching and learning tool,” said Dr. Mark Ryan, Superintendent of Oakland Military Institute. “With the new technology and technology solutions, students can enjoy enhanced educational experiences while they are here at OMI, and I believe those experiences will lay the foundation for greater opportunities when they leave this school and pursue future careers.”
