Technology

The goal of the technology program is to create a technology enriched environment that supports learning/independence and prepares students for the workforce.  The program helps community residents overcome barriers that separate them from the power of computers.

The technology program provides three (3) computer levels:  Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced computer trainings year round.  We train 60-75 Spanish speaking residents per quarter.

Our services are directly focused to those participants that have a clear goal toward financial success:

  • Participants seeking a job
  • Participants seeking advancement in their current industry (looking for a promotion)
  • Participants who own a family business and want to learn how to manage more efficiently
  • Participants on a higher educational path
