Img 2260Microsoft has generously donated $317,500 in software to Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. This state-of-the-art software will help improve our ability to deliver vital programs and services to children, youth and families across the Okanagan Valley.

The new software will allow us to have all agency electronic information securely stored in one central location and protect our information with proper back ups, storage and security. This includes our business information and that of the children, youth and families that we serve.

OBGC has invested over $90,000 in hardware to improve our technology and to improve all issues above. The new Microsoft software will ensure our hardware investment meet its full potential.

The new software will also help improve productivity and increase our ability to provide services to kids and families by connecting our centres through technology that are geographical separated across the Okanagan Valley. OBGC currently has over 125 staff computers and 50 youth/community computers stationed over our 33 service locations in the Okanagan.

Thank you Microsoft for bringing us into the 21st Century and helping us ensure we are more secure, connected and productive while we give all our children, youth and families a safe place to belong.
