How clients are chosen

Clients are chosen by our Advisory Council, based on 6 factors:

  1. Whether the organization meets or is presumed to meet the IRS definition of a charitable organization under section 501(c)(3)
  2. Whether the proposed project matches offerings and student ability
  3. Willingness of agency to work with students (being available, having tolerance for student learning gaps, etc)
  4. Degree to which agency mission supports the neediest members of our local community
  5. The relative stability of the organization
  6. The apparent need for the technology services provided
