Shared goal(s): Provide student access to learning technology, Support youth during out-of-school time activities
BIRCH delivers balanced, curated content directly to mobile devices because not all families have laptops or iPads at home (or several family members are sharing them), and caregivers need easy access to quality activities that support their children’s growth in all of these areas, especially during this period of isolation. BIRCH also includes guidance to help parents support their children emotionally during this time of change and uncertainty.
