Corinthian Baptist Church held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new Community Technology Center on Saturday, March 3, 2012.
Reverend Michael C. Burton was the Master of Ceremonies and led the program with a Welcome by Sister Twyla Woods, Technology Center Director, musical selections from the youth choir, God’s Gifted Voices, and ended with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Visitors were given the opportunity to tour the Technology Center with local Central Academy students explaining upcoming classes and features of the center.
The Corinthian Community Technology Center (CCTC) is the vision of Pastor Burton. He led an effort to establish relationships and partnerships that resulted in the creation of the CCTC. The Corinthian Baptist Church members believe in the necessity for communities to come together to make a positive change. Access to and understanding of technology is a major issue for many of our Greater Des Moines residents. The CCTC will help fill that void.
The CCTC will provide computer education, instruction and/or job training to senior citizens wanting computer skills for personal use, adults who are unemployed or underemployed, youth who need computer and internet access, and youth and adults who need GED classes and testing. The CCTC will also provide FAFSA help and will be an Iowa Workforce Development site.
The collaborating partners include:
Corinthian Members and Families
Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC)
Evelyn Davis Learning Center
Iowa State University
Iowa Prison Ministries
Iowa Workforce Development
Wilkie House, Inc.
A special Computer Classes for seniors who are 55 and older, Introduction to Computers, are being held at the CCTC in the Spring.
