On Thursday, May 9, Technology United

"It helped us all learn more about the outstanding work being done by non-profits in our community. I'm now working with United Way and MPS to organize a job shadow because we understand the benefit that comes from connecting these students with businesses like ours. We would like to be good community citizens and advocates for the continued progress of these students."
