The Center is designed to serve 30 new clients each week and 250 clients who will be revisiting the Center. Desired outcomes: 1) school and community participation in the technology center; 2) better-educated and trained students, adults and seniors; 3) more academically competitive graduates; and a 4) re-energized community that comfortably and confidently applies and uses technology in their every day lives.
