The Frankford CDC is more grateful each and every day to house a new computer lab, open and free to the public. And this past Sunday, we were thrilled to host, along with our friends at PhillyRising and the Mayor’s Office of Education as well as State Representative Tony Payton, a free college financial aid and tax preparation event. We had experts on hand to take students and their parents through the process of filling out the federal college financial aid forms, funding that is so critical for so many young folks. And we were also able to help several Frankford residents file their tax returns for the year.
We are in the process of scheduling other programming for the computer lab – so stay tuned for information about upcoming workshops. Possible topics include online job searches, basic computer skills, and social networking for businesses.
And enjoy the pictures below from this past Sunday! Thanks to all who made it such a success!
