The Free Help Desk is live now, and it will be operational through the 
end of April.  We have a _huge _number of corporate volunteer IT 
specialists willing to assist educators with technical issues, and 
willing to give career advice to students. We're collecting data in 
April, and if demand is high, we'll continue the project in the coming 
months.
All the best,
Heather

Hi Listers,
I'm excited to share a new program with you.  Digital Wish has set up a 
free help desk for teachers, and free career advice for students - in 
the month of April. I've pasted a notification below and you are welcome 
to circulate any information from this link:
http://www.digitalwish.com/dw/digitalwish/helpdesk 
<http://www.digitalwish.com/dw/digitalwish/helpdesk>

The volunteer responders are from Fortune500 corporations.  All emails 
are screened for anonymity and safety. It's a great opportunity to do a 
career development project with students right before the summer break, 
when students are thinking about jobs.

Please share this great free program with your school faculty.
Sincerely,
Heather Chirtea

email filter.
