Veolia helps promote student access to technology

WEST NYACK: Equipping people with the means to address today’s problems is the first step toward resourcing the globe. Veolia is pleased to apply this idea by providing local schoolchildren with access to engaging and adaptable learning technologies.

According to Chris Graziano, Vice President and General Manager of Veolia’s New York operations, the company is excited to assist children in gaining access to gadgets and software that can expedite their education and position them for success in the classroom. The notion that today’s pupils will comprise tomorrow’s workforce is something we must never forget.

In the New York counties of Putnam, Rockland, Westchester, and Orange, Veolia serves half a million people with water service. Through its program for charitable contributions, it backs efforts that improve these towns’ long-term viability. Veolia recently provided funding for technological upgrades for students enrolled in the following programs as part of this program:

Rockland’s Head Start

Head Start of Rockland, Inc. bought 63 iPads for pre-kindergarten kids at its Haverstraw, Spring Valley, and Nyack campuses with the help of Veolia. With the help of these iPads, young students can explore an interactive application universe designed to enhance and expedite their personal growth.

P-Tech Hudson Valley

With a recent donation from Veolia, the Hudson Valley P-TECH program of Rockland BOCES was able to purchase new laptops and a 3D printer. With the aid of this technology, students may remain on course with the practical, project-based engineering curriculum offered by the school.

The curriculum attempts to spark kids’ interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) jobs. Graduates from Rockland Community College receive an associate’s degree and a high school diploma at no cost.
