PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Project H.O.M.E is joining with Comcast and the People’s Emergency Center to teach local high school students digital literacy and leadership skills. Project H.O.M.E founder Sister Mary Scullion says the Comcast Digital Connectors program also has a community service component:
“These kids offer to help other neighbors in the community’s computers or help to show them how to utilize the technology.”
The students are from homeless and low-income families. They meet three times a week after school for the Comcast Digital Connectors program at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs in North Central Philadelphia and at PEC classrooms in West Philadelphia.
