The Children's Aid Society has played a significant role in helping to "bridge the digital divide" for children and parents in Harlem and South Bronx. Our East Harlem Center, Dunlevy Milbank Center (Club Tech), HOPE Leadership Academy, Next Generation Center, and Frederick Douglass Center, all provide computer access to children who may not have computers or Internet access at home.
After-school and evening classes teach the basics of how to use computers and navigate the Internet. Computer know-how helps students with their homework and improves test scores. Children also create computer-generated music, art and science simulations.
As a result of our Technology Centers, youngsters and parents in these economically disadvantaged neighborhoods can use technology to support and advance their intellectual development, explore technology-related careers and master the technology that is needed to successfully participate and compete in today's world.
