We love giving back to our communities.
While JS Tech has been helping NYC small businesses for the past 11 years, we’ve also been a part of helping the greater community.
Just as a strong IT infrastructure provides the foundation for a successful business, JS Tech believes that a strong community provides a great foundation for a prosperous future.
Here are some of JS Tech’s charitable projects:
Pro-bono work for Hand in Hand for Haiti
Rebuilding a school's failing IT infrastructure
JS Tech first became aware of the Lycée Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable school in Haiti in 2014, while developing an iPad application for distance learning among students. Joe discovered that ISP (internet service provider) Digicel had created a rudimentary campus network that had fallen into disrepair. Nearly all of the repeaters placed by the ISP were non-functional, so most of the 30+ acre campus went without wifi.
JS Tech solicited massive equipment and time donations to construct a sustainable data network at the school. Using point-to-point radios from Ubiquiti Networks (NYSE:UI), pre-terminated fiber cables, and CAT5e ethernet, JS Tech created a resilient network to deliver high-speed internet access to the campus’s 22 buildings. The network supports a variety of pedagogical applications, including smart boards, distance learning, and electronic labs. The young students are better connected to their world, and benefit from global lessons and influence.
