dc.description.abstractThis document is an overview of the project New Hope Computers, a computer literacy program to provide the necessary occupational and entrepreneurial expertise for At-Risk Youth to compete in current job markets. Nicole Carbone and Eliot Yaffa originally began two separate programs geared towards a similar interest in enhancing the skills of today's youth. Carbone began with a project to assist the lower income area of Lawrence MA in a computer refurbishing business and Yaffa sought to develop the soft skills of At-Risk Youth within Lowell MA. Both individuals combined efforts once a suitable host -- The United Teen Equality Center (UTEC) of Lowell MA -- was found to house to house a program that served both initiatives goals concurrently. The partnership works to service young adults in Lowell Massachusetts through the creation of a Youth-run Multimedia program that teaches computer technology, financial literacy, and the soft skills needed in today's workplace. This initiative also serves as a platform for a Youth Run Computer repair business, for At-Risk Teens by At-Risk Teens. (Author abstract)en_US
