Samsung Canada committed to empowering students through access to innovative technology
Samsung Canada technology continues to support education opportunities for youth throughout the 2021-22 school year and beyond
Over the last year and half, students, teachers and parents have relied on Samsung technology more than ever to facilitate virtual forms of learning. With Samsung’s commitment to supporting students through existing and new education-based partnerships, youth across the country will continue to receive the technology access they need to support their academic journey.
As Canadian students return to the classroom this fall, Samsung Canada commitment to learning remains strong through its extended education partnership with Autism Speaks Canada, a non-profit organization committed to building inclusive communities where autistic Canadians can reach their full potential. For the 2021-22 school year, Samsung will be donating 200 Chromebooks to schoolboards across Canada to give autistic children access to technology they may not otherwise have.
Through this partnership, Samsung has donated over 5,000 devices to autistic children and families in recent years, underscoring the positive impact technology can make.
“As the school year kicks off, we are looking forward to supporting students with a variety of technology solutions. We’re excited to continue this work and build on our education partnerships, as it is clear what an important role technology plays in student learning,” said Jennifer Groh, Senior Director Corporate Marketing and Citizenship, Samsung Electronics Canada.
Tapping into the creativity and ingenuity of Canada’s post-secondary students to help solve urgent social and environmental challenges, Samsung Canada is once again partnering with Enactus Canada to unveil a new “Solve For Tomorrow” challenge this fall, providing both technology donations and cash grants. Since launching Solve for Tomorrow in 2015 Samsung has connected with 1,400 schools and impacted more than 40,000 Canadian students.
Stay tuned for another educational partnership announcement this month as part of the Samsung pledge to give back to students. You can also learn more about Samsung Canada’s CSR programs at: http://csr.samsung.com/en-ca/localMain.do
