Helping Link will use the Technology Matching Funds to establish an educational computer lab for adult and youth classes. This project allows Helping Link to build on the past success they have had in teaching Vietnamese immigrants and youth computer skills by doubling the number of computers available for tutoring and upgrading their equipment and network. The computer lab will hold basic and advanced computer courses, as well as interactive academic courses for high school students such as Math, Physics, Chemistry, and English.
