Students enrolled in the eight month program learn the skills needed to build, repair and troubleshoot computer problems.
The CDC program began in 2009 in Washington D.C. with a group of teenagers who saw the need for greater technology awareness in their neighborhood. To date, program participants have given more than 100,000 hours in service to increase digital access in their surrounding communities.
In fall 2011, the Center for Digital Inclusion and Technology at PEC decided to connect with neighboring high schools to host the CDC program. Overbrook High School was the first school to participate. Building on their community empowerment training, the spring 2013 group supported the Mill Creek community computer lab.
