Computer Skills

An Investment in the Success of the Youth’s Futures

Goals:

  1. Allow on-line college courses – Soon young woman can stay at Echo Glen until 25 years old.  Computers would allow them, and all other eligible youth a head start towards a college degree.   Continuing ed will set these youth up for greater success when they are released and has been shown to reduce recidivism.
  2. To allow residents to complete resumes, on-line job applications, look for housing, and other services needed for their success ‘on the outs’.
  3. Allow volunteers to start up vo-tech classes such as: computer programming, coding, computer repair, graphic design, and Photoshop workshops.

Needed: Volunteers to teach the youth valuable computer skills that will help them launch into successful future careers.

Wish List: GRANTED!  Awed, overwhelmed and infinitely grateful to Joe who is going to purchase, set-up, and run a lab for the youth.  Thank you Joe. You’re generosity will transform the current resident’s lives and future generations to come!
