Diversified Community Technology Center is calling on individuals and businesses to help advance our objectives to inprove the lives of kids

According to the Minnesota Literacy Council, •Public schools report that the number of parents whose lack of basic skills are barriers to the success of their children is growing, not declining. - Minnesota Department of Education •Over 14,450 learners who participated in Adult Basic Education programs reported being able to better assist their children in school. – 2009 Literacy Minnesota Report • Adult Basic Education is a major influence on K-12 achievement. A recent survey by a suburban Twin Cities program indicated that 77% of adult learners in their district have minor children living at home, with each family averaging 2.4 children. Parents with more education read to their children, help them with homework, and communicate effectively with teachers, helping build better K-12 outcomes. The educational level of parents is the biggest influence on the educational outcomes of their children. – 2009 Literacy Minnesota Report In view of these barriers to the success of children, Diversified community Technology Center has implemented a program called “Empowering Children Through Computer-Aided Reading.” With this program, children will learn Math, Science, Reading and other subjects in their homes by means of interactive computer educational software. This tested method of learning is helping kids to get away from too much of television viewing, thus enabling them to learn and at the same time have fun. We have implemented this program to help children from low-income background whose parents are either willing or unable to help them with after school activities or assignments because they lack basic literacy education. This program helps low-income students to do better in school by providing children with free computer loaded with educational software in order to improve their learning environment at home. Diversified Community Technology Center currently serves 27 children in our computer aided reading program and we are determining to expand this program to over 500 children in the twin cities area by December 2010. Diversified Community Technology Center is an affiliate of the Computer for Youth program in New York, which is currently running similar program for children. Diversified Community Technology Center also provide help to individuals and families in the community gain access to basic technology and training in basic technology skills, adult basic and literacy education, immigrants and refugee services, career development opportunities, financial literacy, resume and cover letter writing, helping parents/teens, children, and families with creative computer learning activities. Our program is open to all individuals/families in the twin cities and other surrounding area. We are determining to bring significant change to the twin cities communities.
