When the COVID-19 pandemic closed schools across America last year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston kept their doors open so that young people could have safe places to continue their classroom learning online while their parents worked. But the clubs faced a big challenge. Not all their spaces were equipped with internet connectivity aside from their technology labs. With social distancing measures and safety protocols being paramount, the clubs needed to utilize every room possible to keep kids in pods and to give every child the ability to connect to their classrooms virtually. This is where the clubs’ long-time relationship with Comcast in the area helped to not only overcome this obstacle, but to set up kids for virtual learning for the long haul.
