Several Ft. Lauderdale students in the Information Technology program volunteered their time and talent to assist ChildNet, a government agency that protects abused, abandoned and neglected children in the community, with relocating and setting up all of their computers moving them from their old building to setting them up in their new facility. Marcus Batson, a recent graduate who now works for ChildNet reached out to the campus to see if KU students would be able to assist in this effort. Keiser University strongly believes in supporting and investing in the community through service and leadership projects and was honored to be asked to be a part of this project.
Student, Kohan Barnette said, “Our time at the ChildNet Organization was a great learning experience. We assisted in installing approximately 300 computers, monitors, keyboards, mouse devices, printers, and phones in several office cubicles, on different sections and floors of the building. The staff members of the organization were courteous and friendly, as we connected well as a team in completing the task. It was good to be a part of something that we can very well benefit from in the future.”
