2010 MLK Day Technology Challenge

The White House is encouraging technology professionals to use their skills to help those in need. Their 2010 MLK Day Technology Challenge is “to connect schools and non-profits that have technology needs, including skills training and mentorship, with web professionals, developers, graphic designers and new media professionals who are willing to volunteer their skills for the common good.”

Some of their recommended activities will sound very familiar:

  • Refurbish computers for schools
  • Teach students how to use popular software or online services
  • Build a database for a nonprofit
  • Help out in your school’s computer lab
  • Become an online mentor for students across the country
