Kast a Wide Net
"Our students are learning new skills, having fun, and receiving access to the same things as their peers at school. The Tech Center's purpose is to help close the digital divide for underserved children of our community."
For Steve Kast, Connect-A-Kid is a labor of love that started in 1996 when the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula and Cox Communications joined in an initiative to provide Internet access for children who do not have computers at home. When the program began, it served one Club and 500 children a year.
