To qualify for a ClickToConnect computer, children must meet the following criteria:
- Children must be school-aged (4-18);
- Come from a family that earns less than $60,000 per year (although we are flexible given individual circumstances)
- The child must be sponsored by an adult who is a parent, grandparent, guardian, or teacher (or other responsible adult – applications may be submitted by community and social workers);
- The parent or guardian must sign the ClickToConnect agreement upon computer delivery.
Please read the instructions below carefully.
If you are a child between the ages of 4 and 18, the first step is to get a parent, guardian, or caseworker to fill out an application on your behalf. We also need a signed ‘Parental Release’ form (that we will provide at pick-up/delivery). This lets us know that your parent, guardian, or caseworker is agreeing to supervise your use of the computer. We do not need proof of family income, simply a declaration that you meet our requirements.
If you are a community, school, or social centre that serves students, we can also help you. We are pleased to work with any organization that removes the barriers to our students having ready and safe access to a computer. Please complete the application form and let us know how we can help
