New Horizons works with C2SDK to Provide Computers for Low Socio-Economic Kids in San Diego
April 2, 2013
Economic barriers to technology in today's society hinder the growth and development of low-income families and continuously widen the socioeconomic gap. Official San Diego County estimates suggest that 41.8% of public school students are from low-income families and 28% of San Diego families do not have a computer in their home.
Of projected San Diego jobs with the highest anticipated growth (Business Services, Communications, Defense and Transportation Manufacturing, Medical Services and Software and Computer Services) all but 4 of 25 occupations analyzed will require computer skills.
Based on the estimate of 13,974 City of San Diego residents that would not be able to enter into occupations that require computer skills, lost wage potential can amount to $366,635,838 annually based on the 2004 annual average entry-level wage of $26,237 for technology sector jobs.
New Horizons is proud to show our support and work with C2SDK in its goal to provide technology for low socio-economic kids. As the world's largest independent computer training provider, New Horizons is proud to help C2SDK in accomplishing this.
