  • Title: Services - Why Access to Technology is Important | Computers 2 San Diego Kids | C2SDK
    Descriptive info: Why Access to Technology is Important.. There is a huge disparity between socio-economic status and computer use among San Diego’s population:.. Economic barriers to technology in today’s society hinder the growth and development of low-income families and continuously widen the socioeconomic gap.. Official San Diego County estimates suggest that 41.. 8% of public school students are from low-income families and 28% of San Diego families do not have a computer in their home.. Of projected San Diego jobs with the highest anticipated growth (Business Services, Communications, Defense and Transportation Manufacturing, Medical Services and Software and Computer Services) all but 4 of 25 occupations analyzed will require computer skills.. Based on the estimate of 13,974 City of San Diego residents that would not be able to enter into occupations that require computer skills, lost wage potential can amount to $366,635,838 annually based on the 2004 annual average entry-level wage  ...   5% of respondents within the city of San Diego are either uncomfortable or have no experience with computers in general and 7.. 9% of San Diego respondents are either uncomfortable or have no experience with the Internet in general.. Of San Diegans who did not own a home computer, 29.. 6% indicated that they did not have access to a computer at all.. Because children of low-income families rely primarily on their school computers and have no technological access at home, they are at a significant disadvantage compared to children with home computers and this limits the overall success of the family to compete in today’s technology driven market.. The connection between socio-economic status and computer use among San Diego’s population illustrates how lower income families struggle to stay competitive without technology.. Economic barriers hinder the growth and development of low-income families and only widen the socio-economic gap..

  • Title: Recycle & Refurbish | Computers 2 San Diego Kids | C2SDK | Making Their Future a Reality
    Descriptive info: ReUse is the New Recycling.. The fast pace of computer innovation has provided today’s technology users with more powerful systems at lower prices.. This leaves many of us with a dilemma.. Every time we upgrade one of our computers to gain more speed, more storage or more bells and whistles, we're left with an older computer that no longer meets our needs.. For most of us, the easiest thing to do is to put the old computer system in a closet, storage or some other out-of-sight, out-of-mind location.. The worst choice you can make is to put the computer (or any electronic equipment) in the trash.. Landfills are no place for the harmful chemicals, including lead, cadmium, beryllium and mercury, found in virtually all digital equipment.. With many other solutions available, there's no reason to simply throw an old computer away.. There is, however, a better solution that is both socially and environmentally responsible.. C2SDK’s comprehensive program.. of recycle, refurbish, and respond provides an ideal solution for this issue.. C2SDK is committed to providing our donors with a free, green alternative for their technology, saving them the financial  ...   tax deductible!.. Three-step Security.. Thoroughly deleting confidential data is.. essential.. to all of our donors.. For businesses looking for ways to comply with the security requirements of legislation like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, a sound policy on data control and destruction is crucial a legal necessity.. C2SDK completely eradicates all user data from computer hard drives using one of two methods:.. Secure Erase Utility “HHDerase” or.. Darik’s Boot and Nuke (DBAN) software.. authorized by the Department of Security Services to meet Department of Defense Sanitization Standard as outlined in the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual DoD 5220.. 22-M.. Each system is then thoroughly cleaned, defective hardware is replaced, and each system is then loaded with Microsoft Windows operating system, Microsoft Office productivity software, and various educational programs that focus on math and logic, language arts, science, social studies, art and music, computer programming, using technology, and life skills are loaded.. These computers are then placed into the homes of underprivileged families throughout San Diego, increasing their educational opportunities to be competitive in the job market upon graduation..

  • Title: Recycling Program | Computers 2 San Diego Kids | C2SDK | Making Their Future a Reality
    Descriptive info: Why Recycling Makes a Difference?.. C2SDK believes it’s critical that we reduce computer waste, which comprises about 23 million tons of garbage that is generated each year.. Although some of the metals, glass and plastics in many electronics are indeed recyclable, more than 70% ends up in landfills in Asian and West African Countries.. C2SDK also strongly believes that the estimated 30 to 40 million PCs that are recycled annually, most still in working condition, could be better used by refurbishing them and giving them to the 28% of San Diego homes without access to technology..  ...   children and their families at a disadvantage, during their school years and beyond.. Long-term storage is not the answer.. In 2007, the U.. S.. EPA estimated that 65.. 7 million desktop computers, 42.. 4 million computer monitors and 2.. 1 million laptop computers were in storage, not being used, costing their owners thousands of dollars in unnecessary storage fees each year.. C2SDK can provide corporations and individuals with a green alternative to their technology storage and disposal needs.. Additionally, donors get the added value of providing needed technology that has been traditionally denied to low-income families..
