Grand Opening of El Valor's Oceanography Themed SMART Classroom!

February 28, 2018


Thank you for joining us on February 28th as we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Rey B. Gonzalez Children & Family Center and opened a new oceanography themed SMART classroom in South Chicago. Children from lower social economic backgrounds are denied the opportunity to interact with and learn from the latest technology. El Valor believes this technology disparity is a social justice issue. El Valor has established three other SMART classrooms in the communities of Pilsen and Little Village, and looks forward to bringing its newest classroom to the children and families in South Chicago.

“A lack of exposure to the latest technology shouldn’t be a roadblock for a child dreaming of being an oceanographer or marine biologist when they grow up,” said Rey Gonzalez, President & CEO of El Valor. “The new SMART classrooms will help our community reach their STEAM goals.”
