Earn is a program designed to support the student’s educational experience
by allowing them to build, and keep for their own, a computer for his or
her educational use. To date, we have had over 600 students successfully
participate in the program.
junior and high school age, spend 20 hours learning the basics of personal
computer technology. Under qualified supervision, participants learn the
basic inner workings of a personal computer as they build one themselves.
At the end of the program, the student has acquired a basic working knowledge
of personal computer hardware and has experienced the success of following
through with a difficult, yet rewarding experience. In addition to a certificate
of completion, the student is also presented with the computer he or she
has assembled, to keep for their own educational enrichment.
Recently The Surplus Exchange and EPA have teamed up to create a project with
some of the youth that participated in the Learn and Earn program. To see that
