SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Starting Tuesday, kids and families utilizing the Bowden Youth Center will be getting some new technology.
The youth center received ten brand new computers and desks on Tuesday. These ten computers and desks were part of a grant from Century Link and Starmark Cabinetry.
They may still be in boxes, but on Tuesday night the new computers will be set up and ready for use inside the Bowden Youth Center.
Officials with the organization say getting new computers is very important to the students.
"Many of our kids don't have access to computers, so really what kid doesn't need it? Now, they will be able to do homework and research," Bowden Youth Center Outreach and Community Services Director Joan Neilan said.
These computers will become an important part of daily life because many of the families that come to the Bowden have had little access to computers.
"Many of our families haven't had access to computers, maybe a little at the library, but some haven’t ever turned one on before. We just feel that's why we need to teach them and help them,” Neilan said.
On Tuesday night at 6 p.m., the youth center will unveil these new computers and have 30 minute training session for the students and their families. You are invited to attend the unveiling.
