BSP Receives Grant from Western Digital Foundation

Western Digital

 

Western Digital has granted BSP a $9,000 grant through its WD Foundation to support BSP’s computer literacy classes in Santa Clara County for janitors or other low-wage building service workers or their families. BSP’s computer classes are mostly offered on Saturdays to accommodate the schedules of janitors who work late nights and often juggle multiple jobs during the week. BSP’s computer literacy program in Silicon Valley was highlighted in a Radio Bilingue segment entitled “Next to the great inventors, janitors learn the ABC of computers in Silicon Valley” that you can listen to in Spanish or read in English.  BSP thanks the WD Foundation for helping BSP close the stark digital divide in Silicon Valley.
