South Lafourche High School

Galliano, LA

Project Description:

St. Pierre developed "Computer Architecture Learn & Serve" to help salvage old computers and computer parts. Students at South Lafourche High School refurbish donated computers and parts and put them back into working circulation in classrooms, libraries, and community-based programs as well as homes of children in such programs as ESL (English as a Second Language) and special education. While participating in the project, students learn hands-on skills that prepare them to take the A+ certification right out of high school. They are learning a skill that can prepare them for a salaried job as a computer technician after finishing high school. St. Pierre resides in Cut Off.
