From: The Temple News

The university’s Computer Recycling Center is partnering with the Philadelphia-based homelessness nonprofit Project HOME to offer community residents a paid technology apprenticeship at Temple.

Together, the Computer Recycling Center and Project HOME, which combats issues of poverty and homelessness, provided participants with 10 weeks of training in technology courses in the fall before they began a nine-week rotating apprenticeship program.

 

From Temple Now:

A new partnership between Temple and Project HOME provides community members with the skills they need to fill jobs in the technology industry.

 

From NBC10:

Mikel Louis, who claims King Kells as his stage name, is a North Philadelphia student who now has his first album out. Louis says the opportunities he’s had only came along because of Inner Power Records, a free, student-run record label.

I looked at the cover of the book:  One Fat Summer.  Probably a light story of summertime teen-age romances, thought I, the teacher and tutor of Eric Darnell Bordley.

Ericka Brown has become an expert in many things over the last year: teaching computer literacy to adults, managing the phones and doors at the front desk of several Project HOME sites, and telling a story that will leave an audience spellbound.

On February 23, a group of students from Project HOME’s College Access Program attended a Philadelphia 76ers game with their business mentors from The Harold A Honickman Entrepreneur Program at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs. This program provides high school students the opportunity to research and develop their own products and/or business proposals. As a way to evaluate the process and build relationships, students present twice a year to their group of mentors.
