    I'm on the board of Technology Services Corps. We have high school students refurbish donated computers, then take them to needy countries. 

    I've led trips to:

  • Costa Rica 2012. One school in Esquipulas, near Aguas Zarcas, San Carlos (Alajuela); second in la Union de Venecia (San Carlos).
  • Ecuador 2009. Two schools in and near the great market town of Otavalo.
  • Guatemala 2007. Estanzuela, the cleanest town in Guatemala (With Global Technology Academy, the predecessor to TSC).

  • An important part of this program is the effect on the students participating. We rely on student leadership. Students are from Garfield high school, which has a mixed population, and these trips are a great way to promote interaction and friendships among races in a positive context.
