Neighborhood Computer Centers
Innovative teaching of computer skills to underprivileged children, youth and adults.
Anyone growing up in a home without a computer is at a huge disadvantage, placing them at the wrong end of the educational and cultural gap. With teachers increasingly emailing students and parents regarding assignments, children without computer skills, as well as their parents, are left behind.
ESRA Computer Centers offer children courses in basic computer skills and help them with online learning of mathematics, science and English. Some advanced computer skills, including competence in digital photography, are also taught through games and use of the Internet.
Courses for adults include basic computer skills and use of the Internet, particularly Facebook, to enable them to keep abreast of their children's and grandchildren's activities.
