Best Buy’s Tim Ehlan, in the center of the back row, presents a $7,500 check to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arizona.

Best Buy at Gateway Mall on Highway 69 was instrumental in obtaining a Best Buy Community Grant for $7,500 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arizona for the "Tech Futures" program.

Participation in this program will help drive academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. Not only will members learn how to use technology which they can apply to their future career, they also learn how to create digital content that effectively communicates their ideas and vision as they strive to create a better world.

"Tech Futures" is designed to engage young people in learning, encourage them to succeed in school and help them become lifelong learners. The program offers resources and training experiences to enhance learning and skill development in areas such as basic software , networking, movie production, robotics and game design.

Some of the grant funds will be used for upgrading or purchasing computers and monitors with adequate processors to handle the demands of today and tomorrow's programs. Additionally, printers, digital cameras, projectors and other equipment will be obtained to bring the technology labs of the Boys & Girls Clubs in Prescott and Prescott Valley into a fully operational status.
