About CCLAC Inc.
Digital literacy is becoming an essential part of everyday life. A lack of computer literacy among adults, particularly in Latino and economically deprived communities, is creating a larger Digital Divide each year.
CCLAC, Inc. is a 501c non-profit organization, originally formed in 1991. CCLAC has developed learning centers and computer refurbishing stations across the border in Mexico. These learning centers emphasize modern literacy and teach employable skills.
In the US, CCLAC partners with major social organizations to provide free computer café where youth volunteers engage with adults, ESL adults, and seniors to help them improve their digital skills.
We offer a turnkey solution and a program that existing organizations can adopt as their own and customize for their clientele. We also provide volunteers, mentors, and administrative support and marketing for up to six months.
We collaborate with our partners to secure grant funding, when possible.
CCLAC is also actively involved in conducting demographic studies of digital literacy, broken down by age groups, economic background, and other factors. These results will be shared with educational and social organizations, as well as with the press and media when the studies are complete.
