Ten laptop computers to allow 6 of 12-year-olds to master computer technology as well as work on their homework are now at Manteca’s Boys & Girls Club thanks to T.J. Waterford and his wife Monique of REeBroker Realty on Cherry Lane in Manteca. 

“The self-confidence they get once they have the concept is elevating and something nobody can take away from them and they will take it back to school and on to high school and beyond,” Waterford said. 

Waterford has funded the computer program through two non-profit organizations and his REeBroker Real Estate firm in Manteca through proceeds from his real estate sales.  He said learning computer concepts early on in life through the Boys & Girls Club is about elevating a youngster and making sure they will be successful in life and have the potential to earn robust salaries after they graduate from college. 

The Waterfords were visiting the Boys & Girls Club to see how their young students were doing on the computers they will eventually get to take home with them to join with their parents in the world of technology and attain a “financial peace” in the process.

A half dozen or more young students lined one wall at their laptops totally engrossed in the programs before them – ready to go home and tell their families all about their new experiences.  Once they have completed the basic concept training they will be go on to advanced computer classes.
