Mission Statement

PEC's Digital Inclusion (DI) program helps build self-reliance and expand education and employment opportunities for West Philadelphia residents by introducing them to the power of technology. PEC has distributed more than 300 computers to community residents and provides technical support for all PEC and West Philadelphia residents that participate in the DI program.

Description

Teen Technology Network
The Teen Technology Network (TTN) helps local high school students stay on track for graduation while preparing for job opportunities in the computer technology field. TTN introduces students to basic computer skills and teaches them to refurbish computers, use the internet and complete multimedia community service projects.

Sixth Grade Stars
Studies point to 6th grade as a critical turning point in the lives of children, one that presents a unique opportunity to set them on the path to long-term economic and social well-being. In response to these findings, PECCDC created the Sixth Grade Stars (SGS) Program to provide sixth grade students from schools in the surrounding community with academic tutoring and technology instruction. The program consists of three 10-week sessions with classes three times a week.
