Microsoft YouthSpark Brings Education Tools To Underserved Students

Microsoft currently offers several “Spark”-branded outreach programs, which aim to bring new groups of developers and users to Microsoft and its products. Recently, Microsoft added another program-  Microsoft YouthSpark. The new program partners Microsoft with other governments, nonprofit organizations and businesses “to help close the opportunity divide for youth,” according to the company’s website.

Through the program, Microsoft will bring cash contributions to organizations that serve youth populations around the globe, giving them access to Office 365 for Education, Skype for classrooms, other technology tools for teachers and students, and “a free global community for teachers to connect their students with others around the world.” Take a look at the infographic below to learn a bit more about the program, or check out the Microsoft YouthSpark website.
