Who We Are

We are a student-run branch of We Care Act, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to engaging youth in community service and increasing social mobility. In New York, we are dedicated to providing accessible and sustainable technology to students who need them.

We believe in...

Education

Empowering students through taking away barriers of technology access and placing the Internet's resources at the tip of their fingers.

Environment

Diverting electronics from companies and renewing their life to help students and our Earth thrive.

Technology

Leveraging technology and education through tutoring services, programming resources, and technological guidance.

Our Story

Founded by Bronx Science students in 2021, We Care Act NYC aims to provide underserved students in New York City with access to personal digital devices.

We obtain computer donations from our partners and corporations from around the five boroughs who no longer need the technology and seek ways to give back to their community. With these generous donations, we are able to take used equipment, refurbish and renew them, and donate them to disinvested communities and students around NYC.

Environmentally Conscious

A large focus of our mission is sustainability. Our volunteers are dedicated to fight for a green New York, and we embrace environmentalism in our process of renewing and recycling laptops.

Tech-Oriented

Our workshops help volunteers learn the basics of computer hardware, software, and computer hygeine to help them repair technology for a better future.
