ETC

The Employment and Technology Center

The Employment and Technology Center (ETC) is an integral part of Harlem Children’s Zone. Its programs teach computer and job-related skills to teens and adults. It serves over 280 students and 90 percent of its 2008-09 high-school seniors were accepted into college. ETC places, at its helm, the necessity to create an environment that compels youth to be active learners and designers of their environment. With an emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach to arts and technology education, the Tech Program approaches learning with a vigorous focus on expanding technical skills, delving into critical thinking, and expressing creative ingenuity. The teaching artists use New York City as a living classroom and resource for exploration through exposures and technology as a means for the youth to translate their ideas.
