This class covers the following topics: Introduction to computers, and the Internet as well as safety on the Internet, Word processing, Creating presentations, Computer programming, and Computer connection.

ABOUT THE REGISTRATION FEE: We normally don't charge anything to youth participating in our program, unfortunately, we have a number of no-shows sign up for classes and this reduces the overall number of students who participate. The $25 class fee that will be refunded upon completion of the six-week program. Please do not let this stop you from attending - a waiver is available for those who are not able to pay the deposit.
