KRAMDEN INSTITUTE, Executive Director
Kramden Institute is setting a new standard for bridging the digital divide by collecting, refurbishing, and awarding computers to students and families without a computer in their home; inspiring students to succeed by teaching them critical computer, software and Internet skills, and recycling and reusing donated computers and parts; extending their lives and reducing e-waste. To date 42,243 computers have been donated, 7,334 students have participated in educational programs and in a single year Kramden can keep more than 300,000 pounds of electronics out of the waste stream through recycling and re-use. Headquartered in RTP, Kramden has distributed computers to students from 84 counties across North Carolina and four military bases.
There has never been a more exciting time to lead this dynamic and growing organization. Kramden just moved into a 15,000 square foot space which will allow it to do more and absorb future growth. It recently launched a $1 million campaign to upfit the new space, expand its programs and pay off the mortgage. The campaign quickly surpassed its original goal of $300,000 and Kramden has now set its sights higher. Check back later for full job description.
