CTTC’s Anniversary Party Nearly Here!

Skillpoint Alliance’s Community Technology Training Centers (CTTC) program celebrates 10 years of service to the community and the grand opening of its downtown computer lab Thursday, March 26 from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Skillpoint’s office, 201 East 2nd Street, Suite B, where the lab is housed. Representatives from Microsoft, IBM, City of Austin, Titus Electric, Austin Business Furniture, and Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas will be recognized for their support of the new lab that has served more than 100 clients since opening.

 

CTTC provides low-cost, comprehensive computer training and professional development to Austin’s under- and unemployed population at two local high schools as well as the downtown facility. More than 2,900 were served in 2008 with 65 volunteers providing more than 775 hours of service.

 

“We’re excited about our anniversary party and to show off the lab because our program is more relevant than ever,” says CTTC Managing Director Stacy Bouwman. “Because of the economy, the number of people who’ve attended orientation sessions has doubled since the beginning of the year.”

 

Clients improve computer skills in a variety of classes and learn to make their résumés more competitive through CTTC, which is one of Skillpoint Alliance’s many programs. In its 14-year history, the nonprofit organization has served as a leading intermediary organization in Central Texas by offering thousands of students, educators and adults industry-based career awareness services, cutting-edge professional development and workforce training for underserved populations.
