TechConnect, connecting youth with Mounties & computers

Feb 16, 2017

Local RCMP are launching a new initiative with help from the RCMP Foundation, connecting kids with technology.

Through TechConnect, youth will be able to earn a laptop and an officer will teach the student how to use the computer for educational purposes as well as how to safely navigate around social media and prevent cyber-bullying.

It is hoped the program will encourage students to contribute positively to their school and community while staying safe online.

The official launch is next Thursday at Crystal Park School.
