NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 9, 2017) – Yesterday, alongside community partners and elected officials, Comcast donated $70,000 to the Urban League of Middle Tennessee (ULMTN) in support of a new technology lab for the Family Foundation (HFF) and ULMTN’s digital literacy programs in Middle Tennessee. The lab, located at 3927 Nolensville Pike, Nashville, TN 37211 will serve more than 500 HHF members and community members.
“Our ongoing technology partnership with Comcast has allowed us to open four computer labs in Middle Tennessee and has enabled our youth to discover new and exciting opportunities for their futures,” said Clifton E. Harris, President and CEO, Urban League of Middle Tennessee.
The computer lab will be available to HFF members, community youth and adults. Through a partnership with Comcast and its Internet Essentials program, students will learn many valuable lessons on safe and responsible use of the internet. Adult digital learning classes will also be available.
By exposing youth to new technology skills, they will be more likely to pursue a career in a STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) field, which is expected to grow nearly twice as fast as other fields in the United States by 2018.
The Hispanic Family Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Hispanic families in Middle Tennessee. We work through platforms of— Economic, Education, Social Services, Advocacy and Culture—to provide programs that strengthen the Nashville Hispanic community.
