  • Mission:
  • CFY's mission is to help students in low-income communities, together with their teachers and families, harness the power of digital learning to improve educational outcomes.

  • Overview:
  • CFY-Atlanta is a leading branch of the national non-profit organization, CFY. Founded in 1999, CFY is a national non-profit organization devoted to developing high-impact interventions that leverage digital learning to increase student engagement and ownership in their own learning, help teachers personalize instruction and teach to the new Common Core State Standards, strengthen the home learning environment, and increase parental involvement around learning. CFY-Atlanta’s goal is to help close the academic achievement gap that persists in low-income communities throughout the greater-Atlanta area.

    Launched in May of 2007, CFY-Atlanta has provided our Digital Learning Program to 13 middle school communities within Atlanta Public Schools, Clayton County Schools, Fulton County Schools and Gwinnett County Schools, and has served approximately 6,000 families within the greater-Atlanta area (approximately 1,000 sixth grade students, their families, and their teachers on an annual basis).

    Our signature Digital Learning Program combined with our K-12 cloud-based education platform, PowerMyLearning®, helps schools leverage technology and digital learning to promote STEM literacy and educational equity. CFY’s comprehensive educator support and family involvement services provide the catalyst for transforming traditional Math and Science classrooms into 21st century learning environments that embrace student-centered learning, enable personalized instruction and student-driven learning, while also increasing home technology access and parental involvement in their children’s learning.

    CFY is an affiliate member of the STEM Education Coalition, whose mission is to inform federal and state policymakers on the critical role that STEM education plays in U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity. CFY’s PowerMyLearning platform is widely recognized as a valuable STEM resource and has been showcased at the National Science Teachers Association STEM Forum and Expo, the U.S. News STEM Solutions conference, and as a tool to use for science by Digital Learning Day. In addition, CFY’s Digital Learning Program was recently recognized as one of eight winners at the 2013 Georgia STEM Education Awards.

  • History:
  • Based on a belief that technology can play a transformative role in how children learn, CFY began operations in New York City in 1999 by focusing on children's learning at home - partnering with schools in high-poverty areas to provide their students and families with training and a free home computer loaded with educational software. CFY specifically targeted middle schools because low-income students in this age group are particularly at risk, with research showing several contributing factors:

    • Test scores drop sharply from elementary to middle school – particularly in math and science

    • Children begin to withdraw from academics and their parents due to the onset of adolescence

    • Low-income parents often feel less confident in helping their children with increasingly complex assignments.

    Our next focus was to increase the breadth and number of digital learning activities that were pre-loaded onto the computers (to include all key subject areas taught in middle school), as well as to expand our operations to additional cities. By 2009, CFY was operating in four cities: New York City, Atlanta, Los Angeles and the San-Francisco Bay Area. Nationally, CFY has served more than 60,000 families in over 100 schools.

    As software evolved and broadband became more available, CFY saw new opportunities to leverage digital learning in all of the environments in which students learn: the classroom, after-school space, and the home. In 2010, CFY launched, a free K-12 on-line learning platform where students, teachers, and parents can easily find and use the best digital learning activities (educational videos, games, interactives, and simulations). PowerMyLearning allowed CFY to embark on the next evolution of its program: helping school leaders and educators effectively incorporate digital learning into their instructional practices to provide personalized learning opportunities and encourage students to take ownership of their learning.
