From the beginning, Intel has been an amazing partner for Adelante’s DiverseIT program. They have donated hundreds of computers. They have provided program support to help DiverseIT offer technology skills training for individuals with disabilities, too. Intel is an international leader in technology manufacturing and innovation. They invest heavily in the communities where they have a presence. Thanks to donated computers and funding, Adelante DiverseIT trainees refurbish computers, which are then distributed to other nonprofits and individuals in need. DiverseIT is glad this partnership with Intel continues to benefit our programs as well as the community
DiverseIT Receives Intel 40th Anniversary Grant
As DiverseIT expands to meet the priorities of the community, Intel New Mexico continues to support new initiatives that promote diversity and equity in tech. In 2020, Intel celebrated its 40th year in New Mexico. To celebrate the occasion, they partnered with the Rio Rancho Community Foundation to provide 40 grants for STEM projects. DiverseIT gratefully received one of these grants. DiverseIT also received a grant from Intel to provide specialized technology skills and employment training in the virtual classroom for underserved students.
Intel Funding Supports High School Tech Program – Another Great Partnership
School looks very different this year than we thought it would. In response, DiverseIT’s unique technology and career training program went virtual. Staff help students gain the skills they need for future careers in technology in an online classroom, and the grant from Intel made this possible. Additionally, students at Tech Leadership High School received refurbished computers to help them fulfill their educational requirements from home. Despite setbacks, these students show perseverance and tenacity even in the midst of a pandemic. One student was homeless for most of the semester, but access to a computer allowed her to fully participate in the training. She was able to complete and pass all of the program requirements.
With support from Intel New Mexico, DiverseIT is helping to develop the next generation of diverse leaders in technology. We thank Intel for continuing to invest in New Mexico’s rich history of cultural diversity and technological innovation.
