In June 2014, in collaboration with the City of Waynesboro, the Waynesboro Area Learning & Technology Center (WALT) opened a new computer lab at the historic Rosenwald Community Center (RCC). It is an after school program that has been established as a learning site for disadvantaged youth and young adults.
RCC offers resources to help bridge the digital divide, primarily through the public accessing computers, training and the Internet. The training range from basic computing skills, digital literary to applied skills, (e.g. math, science, reading, online job searches, job applications, etc.) to promote academic success.
The objective of this program is to increase residents’ self-sufficiency, capacity to learn, develop technology skills and talent to help build a more educated, more able workforce, safer and better connected community.
