The Community Computer Lab Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization designed to set-up and maintain high-tech, professional technology labs in low-income areas where technology is not readily available. Each technology lab is equipped with the latest and fastest computers, high-speed internet access, laser printers and productivity software. Free Microsoft Office Specialist, Computer Networking, Computer Repair & Graphic Design training is offered to the community. Local residents of all ages are invited to sharpen their technology skills by visiting one of our technology labs. There are a number of ways the labs may be used:
1.) Career building (applying for jobs, writing resumes, etc.)2.) Learning basic to advanced technology skills (MOS, A+ and Cisco)
3.) Accessing government services (Social Security, IRS and FASFA)
4.) Language learning (Rosetta Stone)
We believe in offering diverse audiences the opportunity to gain hands on experience in computer use. Creating a safe space for individuals to expand their technological skills. We believe that people are capable of teaching one another, and we support a broad range of the naturally occurring relationships supporting community inclusiveness and learning.
TECHNOLOGY LAB HOURS
Monday - Thursday: 10:00 am - 8:00 pm
Friday: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The lab is open to the public free of charge. There is no need for advance registration as the lab is being run on a drop-in basis. Please note each lab follows the federal government's schedule. When the government is closed due to weather and/or holidays, the lab is closed as well. Notices about unscheduled closes will be posted on the CCLP, Inc. Twitter and Facebook pages.
The lab sessions are staffed by students from local colleges who are ready to provide informal instruction in and assistance with a number of basic computer activities, such as online job searches, resume writing, setting up email accounts, learning how to use instant messaging, and employing the Internet to manage personal finances online or to access information on voting or other government issues or services. They will offer pointers on how to use word-processing and spread-sheet programs, and keyboarding tutorials are also available for those looking to acquire or improve typing skills.
