Student Club Gives Back to the Community

IADT Student Club, Detroit Digital Movement, focuses on community projects

Troy, Mich. – Students enrolled in the Digital Media program at the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) have formed a club, Detroit Digital Movement. The club’s primary focus is to provide students with opportunities to interact with and give back to the surrounding communities.

Currently, students in the digital media club are collecting used computers and computer parts so they can refurbish the machines and donate them to residents of local retirement homes. They will be doing computer restoration as an ongoing project for as long as they can collect the used machines. If enough computers and parts are collected, they hope to expand the project by donating the refurbished machines to underprivileged citizens that cannot otherwise afford one.

“The student members of Detroit Digital Movement are very conscientious about their community citizenship,” said Mike Rosik, Digital Media Program Chair at IADT. “They are generous with their time and talents, giving back as much as they can.”
