At Learn iT!, we strive to make a difference and help people become more knowledgeable and confident at work. We are happy to carry this goal outside of the office by volunteering or sponsoring events in our community.
Larkin Street Youth Services
Larkin Street provides youth between the ages of 12 and 24 with the help they need to rebuild their lives. Each year, more than 3,000 youth walk through their doors seeking help. Larkin Street gives them a place where they can feel safe; rebuild their sense of self-respect, trust, and hope; learn school, life and job skills; and find the confidence to build a future.
Learn iT! is honored to provide free End-User classes to many Larkin Street youth and contribute to their education and future.
4th Annual “Baseball with the Pros”
Learn iT! sponsored the 4th Annual “Baseball with the Pros” on Saturday 9/20/14. Professional baseball players met and worked with local kids in this free baseball clinic.
Heartfelt thanks to Bert Strane, Damon Lembi, the Pros, and all of the volunteers that pitched in for another fun event.
The 28th Annual Bridge School Benefit
Learn iT! is proud to be a Gold Level Donor for this amazing musical event. The Bridge School Benefit Concert is an annual, all acoustic, non-profit charity event held every October in Mountain View, California. All proceeds directly benefit the operations of The Bridge School.
Raphael House, conceived as the first shelter for children and families experiencing homelessness in Northern California, provides an environment of loving support.
Families and children are able to restore and strengthen family bonds as they move toward brighter and more hopeful futures.
Learn iT! employees volunteer time to help prepare meals for families that call Raphael House home.
Glide Memorial & Learn iT Giants Day
Learn iT staff, 22 kids and their guardians spent a day at AT&T Park.
Community outreach is always positive. Learn iT knows that having fun is an important part of growing up. We are thankful to have partnered with Glide Memorial Church to bring 22 kids and their guardians to a day of fun in the sun at the ball park.
With over 50 programs – from hot meals to high tech job skills training – Glide is a wonderful organization, committed to helping and empowering the whole person. For more information, visit Glide online.
KEEN (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now)
KEEN is an organization that provides free recreational opportunities to children and young adults with disabilities. Learn iT employees were happy to help KEEN by volunteering to be paired with trained volunteers for fun, noncompetitive activities. It was a remarkable day of fun and recreation with amazing kids!
Family Giving Tree
The Family Giving Tree Holiday Wish Drive offers a way to directly touch a child’s life. They work with more than 250 Bay Area social service agencies that supply them with the names and wishes of the children. A wish card is printed for each child, detailing their age, gender, first name, and their wish for a holiday gift.
Every year Learn iT! encourages gift giving to the less fortunate. We place a tree in our lobby and spread the word. We weren’t surprised that employees had a great time selecting gifts for children, but we were totally taken aback by how many of our amazing students did, too! We ended up with a pretty impressive stack under the tree!
Learn iT also made a cash donation to the Family Giving Tree. If you or your company is interested in making a donation, please click here for details.
