Changing lives through…

Technology Center


Our dream of having an inviting state-of-the-art Technology Center was made possible through numerous generous donations of funds, labor, materials, and services.  The groundbreaking for the Center took place on a rainy day in October, 2008. Rain is supposed to bring good luck and we think it did.  The Center was completed in a short time and opened for business in May of 2009.


On August 25, 2009, a cross section of local, county, and state  political, academic, and community agency representatives, Board members and staff, as well as El Centro Hispano clients participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony officially inaugurating the center. 


Since its inception in May 2009 at our previous location, our Technology Center has been a vital aspect of El Centro's programming, consistently operating five days a week. Following the relocation to our new permanent home, the New Technology Center resumed technology classes in September 2023. Now open seven days a week, it caters to adults and seniors, boasting twenty-five computer

stations, one teacher workstation, new TV screens, and high-speed internet access.


Courses offered at the Center:

Computer Classes for Adults and Seniors

From January to December 2023, El Centro offered 7 in-person computer classes: 3 Beginners, 2 Intermediate, and 2 Advanced classes. Each class is offered once a week for 3 hours for 16 weeks. A total of 113 students completed the classes offered this year. We are incredibly proud of our students and of their accomplishments.

Culture through Technology Program

The Culture through Technology Program, initiated in 2001 met last year on Saturdays in person at the Eastview Middle School Campus. This program aims to enhance students' reading proficiency and bolster their academic skills through tutoring. Additionally, students engage in discussions on various topics including nutrition, bullying, school environment, parent relationships, and global warming, exploring cultural differences in each theme. Every student develops a project as a culmination of their time in the program. In 2023, this program assisted 29 students. This program was funded by the Westchester County Youth Bureau.
