program history

In 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.
