In today's wired world, computers mean access — access to information, access to people and access to services. Dans la rue has set up a computer lab with Internet access to allow youth to search for employment opportunities, complete resumés and cover letters and search for apartments. The computer lab also allows kids to gain valuable computer skills that help improve their employment prospects.
Another positive aspect of this facility is that the lab is monitored by a kid on the work program. This kid is there to make sure the computers are used according to established rules and also to provide basic technical support.
Additional computers are available in our alternative high school where students can perform all of the above tasks along with their required school work.
