Open Access Computer Lab

In our open access computer center we give participants the resources so that they can compete for meaningful jobs and other economic opportunities in today’s high tech marketplace, facilitating their self-sufficiency, and contributing to the community’s economic health.

Under the guidance of 2 or more computer lab monitiors, our participants learn 21st Century job search skills, and how to use computers and the internet to research careers and current job listings, apply online for positions, networking using social media sites, create resumes and cover letters for printing, and in rich text format for email, and learn the best ways to use email when looking for work.

Our goal is to remove technological barriers and increase computer access for underserved residents, serving those left out of the economic mainstream, or left behind educationally because of their lack of computer/technical and literacy skills.
