TRP offers the Technology Leadership Institute for Adults. Since 2009, TRP has been offering computer literacy programs to residents and small business owners as part of the Smart Communities program. Classes are intended to build individuals’ knowledge of basic computer skills and programs such as Microsoft Office.
TRP’s Technology Institute for Adults brings Information Technology education to a “technology desert” by empowering adults to utilize computer literacy skills to promote safety within their community. In a neighborhood with high unemployment rates, computer literacy classes open the door for career paths in the field of Information Technology.
In a new partnership, TRP is also supplementing the English as a Second Language (ESL) classes offered at La Casa through the City Colleges of Chicago. On Fridays, TRP offers computer literacy classes to those ESL students.
This year, TRP will offer computer literacy classes in Pilsen and in our satellite office in the Back of the Yards. For information about how to enroll, please contact Luiz Magaña, IT Coordinator at 312-880-1145 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
