Last week, 21 laptops purchased with Participatory Budgeting funds arrived at the Community Learning Center (CLC). This is the first project from the City's pilot PB process to be completed.
The CLC helps adults improve their lives and increase their community participation through free educational programs and services, which include English language classes; reading, writing, and math classes; preparation for High School Equivalency examinations, college or training programs, and the U.S. citizenship test; career counseling; tutoring; and basic computer instruction.
CLC students and teachers will be able to use these laptops as part of classroom activities, to research local resources and job opportunities, to learn about the projects on the ballot in the upcoming PB vote, and of course to vote for their favorite PB projects between December 5-12!
