Intel works with NPO Good Friend Mission to provide tools for digital learning

Intel’s 2011 Corporate Calendar in Taiwan will feature the work of 12 young photographers from the company’s Computer Clubhouse program. Computer Clubhouse, sponsored by the Intel Foundation and managed by the Good Friend Mission, has reached more than 1,000 disadvantaged youths since its creation in 2002.

The community-based after-school technology learning program offers youths in underserved communities a chance to use PCs and applications to create computer-based projects inspired by their own ideas. This helps them to acquire the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century workplace.

The 2011 Intel Taiwan Corporate Calendar uses twelve outstanding photographs taken by the young members of the Computer Clubhouse in Taiwan. The calendar showcases the use of technology for learning, creative expression and enhancing self-confidence.

Intel Taiwan has a strong commitment to support these young people, and Computer Clubhouse assists in developing technical fluency and project-based learning with professional-level hardware and hands on experience with software such as Photoshop.

The calendar will be distributed to 3,500 of Intel’s partners in Taiwan, including clients, business partners, media, analysts, government, academia, non-profit organisations and local community members.
