2001, the Latino Community expressed its desire for a computer-learning
program in Spanish. In response, the South Area Family Resource
Center (SAFRC), the Phillips Neighborhood Network (PNN), and the
University of Minnesota (Service Learning, Spanish 3401) collaborated
to produce Aprendamos Computación. The program was immediately
successful and has grown steadily since its inception.
Meets monthly to:
- Create and implement organizational plan
