Three students in the Basic Skills program at McFarland School now have their very own computers thanks to a job-training program with Virtual Scavengers.

The students worked every Tuesday and Thursday during the school year taking apart computers and printersfor the non-profit organization.

Once someone has volunteered with the Virtual Scavengers long enough, they can build their own computer, and now Aaron P., Kayla L. and Max G. can say not only that they have their own computers, but also they built those computers themselves.

“It was fun taking the computers apart,” Aaron P. said. “I learned lot.”

Kayla L. agreed and added that she enjoyed learning how to use the different tools for taking apart the machines.

“I am glad that I was picked for the job,” Max G. said. “We learned to work together and to help each other.”

We’re proud of these students for successfully applying the job training they received and for working hard to earn their own computers!
