Summary

"The CANDICE Project" (Children & Adults Networking Digital into Computerized Evolution), is geared toward improving the quality of life of youth and their parents through a supportive, community based after-hours facility that empowers families to develop the personal and professional competencies they need to function as productive citizens. We emphatically believe, that an accessible computer lab will not only be a tremendous benefit to the families in this area by furthering their education

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We serve youth in grades 7-12 and single parent who have no access to computers in their immediate area. Youth and their parents must travel to other areas of town to utilize computers and other educational resources. This technology funding will allow us to provide computer services close to home to fifty students ages 19-24 needs to create resume, job search and training to become more familiar with the ever changing growth in technology.

How will this project solve this problem?

In its entirety, C.A.N.D.I.C.E. , is comprised of three technology core components 1). Centralized access: the phrase, "centralized-access" cannot be over emphasized. Approximately half of the families that stand to benefit from our community computer center are high school dropouts, home-based students and latch key children who need supervised access to the internet, word processing, data entry, and graphic-based technologies to complete homework assignments.

Potential Long Term Impact

1 .Double the school attendance of the after-hours program and senior citizens within one year. 2. Raise the awareness of internet safety and raise the grade of participants by one letter grade within one year. 3 Double the rate of parental involvement within one year. 4. Increase the graduation rate for students that are living in poverty especially African American young male. 5. Develop partnerships with the law enforcement agencies about cyber-bullying, online safety, social media etc
