The Teaming for Technology program at the Raleigh Boys Club has paired with players in the Carolina Football Development League to teach them how to refurbish computers. As part of the Teen Tech program, the players will then teach middle-school boys how to refurbish computers. The program encourages mentoring and the computers are then donated to schools, nonprofit or community organizations, or low-income children. This program helps teens acquire marketable skills and helps to eliminate the digital divide in the state.
