SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed Solution, a leading provider of professional and managed services, announced today the effort to support the fourth annual event of Foster Youth: 2013 College Bound Program.
In San Diego County alone, 300 teens leave the foster program each year, when they turn 18-years-old. A local non-profit, "Just in Time," helps these former foster teens adjust to life outside the foster system and prepare them with a College Bound Program. In five years, the College Bound Program has helped more than 170 youth toward success in college.
Managed Solution leverages our strategic partnerships to enable us the purchasing of laptops, laptop bags and printers at an extreme cost savings for the program. In addition, we provided the College Bound Program with the imaging of applications on the laptops needed for the transitioning Youth's continued education along with help-desk support throughout their tenor until they graduate.
"Just in Time is an outstanding local organization that is making a difference in the lives of the foster youth in our community," said Sean Ferrel, Chief Executive Officer, Managed Solution. "As a local provider of technology services and solutions, we feel strongly about being involved in the community and we are proud to be able to continue to help further the cause of this great organization."
We are honored to support such a recognized Charity with 74% of the Youths who have chosen to take advantage of the opportunity to attend college.
