IT Literacy Program for Women & Girls 

We provide computer access to girls in High School (including Teen Moms & girls in Youth Shelters) with no access to computers at home for their school work. This fosters their ability to perform school assignments, thus enhancing their chances of staying in school and achieving academic success.

Free computer skills training for underprivileged women (includes women exiting Shelters and previous stay at home Moms who want to return to work after their kids are grown) who need to enhance their computer skills to augment their chances of gaining employment.

Some of the skills offered include:

  • Basic Computer Access
  • Basic Word Processing Skills
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Use of Search Engines
  • Surfing the Web

A view of the free computer class

The class was very helpful.  I had found using my pc very confusing, to the point of being afraid that I might do damage or lose something. It was very enlightening to begin to think of my pc as a specific machine no different, for instance, than a coffee maker. A machine that could become a great help, a time saver in fact. I learned how to manipulate and correct, to add content and pictures. It is fun to dress up a letter or add pictures to something I'm working on or send pictures of my great grand children. Mostly my computer is used for personal stuff. (LW)
