MIAMI - Nov. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- Calvetta Phair, Founder of 'The On It Foundation', a National 501 (c)(3) public-non-profit provides free computers with STEAM virtual and onsite events to K-12 student and their families that receive a free or reduced school lunch, attend a public / home school and reside within the United States. Founded by Ms. Phair in 1999, the organization has been providing free resources to families in need of computers and 21st Century Skill Sets for over 22 years. The organization is the Charitable Partner to America's Workforce Solution, LLC (AWS); Ms. Phair's Staffing and Recruitment firm providing Professional Services for Department of Defense (DoD) Prime Contractors, Small Businesses and the Public/Private sectors. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, with a satellite office in Atlanta, GA, business services are provided internationally.
Ms. Phair has also created a staffing application ReferAll, which mobilizes Ms. Phair's current business model by streamlining the referral sourcing and recruitment process while providing a social enterprise component, (Powered by The On It Foundation). "Over 45% of employee hires come from referrals. Referred candidates offer longevity and higher morale in a company – yet companies still spend more money on job boards instead of employee referral programs," states Ms. Phair. ReferAll is currently piloting the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in the United States to small and large enterprise businesses.
"I'm honored to participate in the Google Certificate Scholarship Program! My passion to create and implement workforce development programs/software, allows me the opportunity to assist those wanting to gain 21st Century Technological Skill Sets while empowering oneself with Personal Development goals of obtaining IT Digital Certifications, and for free! The Google+Coursera Digital Training and Certificates are courses in Data Analytics, Digital Marketing & E-Commerce, IT Automation with Python, IT Support, Project Management and UX Design," states Ms. Phair.
"The On It Foundation receives hundreds of requests for computers daily – validating the Digital Divide is ongoing. If there is one computer in the home, our research has found that the demographic impact reach includes all individuals in the home, possibly the neighbor and those coming to that home to use the computer. And with over 30% of our current workforce remote, and many educational institutions also offering remote learning; our organization have seen a tremendous reduction in donated computers we provide to our K-12 recipients," states Ms. Phair. "Being agile to pivot and find creative strategies to obtain donated computers systems, is our organization's strength," Ms. Phair noted.
Navigating through the challenges of securing donated computers, we have implemented the following new initiatives for those within the United States wanting to gain Next Generation Technology (NGT):
- We have launched our PSA for promoting our Resident Services Program to Multi-Housing Units with computers, discounted Internet service, Digital Learning, Career/Job Readiness Programs and virtual STEAM Events directly to the residents for home ownership. NGT Digital Learning via STEAM Programs. You may view our PSA at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qetMhAGpGzM
