Organization:
Beaver Dam Community Center #1, Inc.
Amount:
$10,260.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Richmond
Description:

The Beaver Dam Community Center is centrally located in a community where most citizens have been trained only for manufacturing jobs and seem to fear the “computer age” that is approaching our community quickly. Most school-aged children come from single-parent homes, and at times the parent(s) don’t have time to listen to his/her child read, do homework, or work with a child in a specialty area that he/she may be having trouble with. This project would help bridge this gap in our community – the digital divide that will keep adults and youth from productive work in the 21st Century. Funds will be used to provide computers and training for residents of this low-income community.
