Welcome

Welcome to Project TECH! We’re glad you are here!

 

Dear Project TECH Families,

 

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to Project TECH! I wish to extend a special greeting to our families, partners, stakeholders, and community leaders. I am honored to serve as Project Director since the inception of Project TECH in 2019. Our goal is to provide opportunities that will influence the educational, social, health and well-being, and recreational needs of all ages and sectors of the community. We offer an array of forums, webinars, speakers, activities, and events as well as experiential learning that is under the branches of technology, education, communication, and healthcare.

 

Education is a life-long process, and we will continue to grow and learn through the many experiences offered through Project TECH. Community engagement creates shared value and develops long-term relationships through collaborative efforts. As the old African Proverb states, “A family is like a forest, when you are outside, it is dense; when you are inside, you see that each tree has its place.” We will work together as one in unity to achieve our goals successfully.  Because the relationships between families and the community are vital to the success of our program, I encourage each member of the community to become involved in at least one of our group sessions. You will find the effort enjoyable and rewarding.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Walker
