Supporting and Empowering Fostered Youth

Tranelle Maner

There is an age-old saying that children are our future. At HubZone Technology Initiative, we believe this is true and do all we can to help uplift and encourage the educational endeavors of youth. An organization with a similar mission is the Hope Center at Pullen.

At the beginning of April, the Director of Youth Programs Delana Epps-Avery asked HTI for help through a donation of Chromebooks. HTI donated five Chromebooks to the organization to aid the transient youths who don’t own laptops and increase support around schooling and future employment success.

The Hope Center at Pullen connects youth aging out of foster care in Wake County with resources and support as they transition into adulthood. Hope Center provides various programs to help these young people in challenges they may face in their life including; tutoring, mentoring, life classes, and internships.

HTI is excited by the opportunity to help young students succeed and have successful journeys into adulthood. If you’d like to learn more or donate your unused or unwanted laptop to HTI to support our efforts, visit our donation or contact us pages.
