In today’s world, computers are everywhere, and many employers expect their staff to have at least basic computer skills. Thanks to a grant from the Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation, the IIIC will begin the New Year with a brand new computer lab for its English for Speakers of Other Languages and Job-Readiness programs.

Each student will now have a new computer – a vast improvement on our cyber café which has older computers and too few machines for each student to have his or her own during class time.

“This lab is a great resource for immigrants who need to learn how to use the web to look for work, create a resume, and have the skills to secure a job in a world so based in technology,” said Wellness and Education director Danielle Owen. “We can’t wait to see the impact our lab has on students once classes begin in January.”
