Our Mission: The Community Technology Center at PCCC provides wide-ranging educational opportunities to low-income children and adults with barriers to learning and employment. Our Center provides people of all ages and abilities free or low-cost access to resources that enable them to learn about computers, use the Internet, explore new careers, further their education, participate in community activities, and develop job-related technology skills. The CTC also brings technology to nonprofits in the community by making its state-of-the-art computer rooms available and offering train-the-trainer workshops. The CTC has maintained long-standing partnerships with churches, schools, local government and businesses.
Our Vision: Through technology, we aspire to be a Center of Excellence which builds community, creates opportunity, and enriches education.
