Earlier this summer, we partnered with Windows on the Chip In program to create a “buy one, give one” offer. For every PC that a student crowd-funded through Chip In, we planned to donate a new PC to participants in the Chicago chapter of our Microsoft YouthSpark partner Year Up.
These Year Up students are currently in the internship phase of the program, and are gaining real-world experience at some of Chicago’s most well-known companies. This experience gives them the opportunity to network and learn the skills necessary to thrive when they enter the workforce.
Please see the Windows blog for more information and photos of the students receiving and unboxing the PCs.
