Twelfth Computer Class Graduation

On December 15, 2015, Korean Churches for Community Development (KCCD) celebrated its Twelfth Graduating Class from the 1736 Family Crisis Center and the sixteenth class from the One Million New Internet Users (NIU) Community Empowerment through Technology Initiative.

Frank Galvan, KCCD Computer Instructor. “I would like to congratulate and thank our graduates who completed an intensive ten week course where they learned typing, essential computer skills, email, web, office suites and online research. Each student created a unique project full of education empowerment resources for themselves and their children. I feel very fortunate to be a witness to all the strong effort and true dedication that our students put into this program. I hope this class was a start to helping you into continuing to keep furthering your education. You’re never too old to keep learning and bettering yourself. Thanks to the Family Crisis Center staff & KCCD staff for all the unconditional support.”

Jacqueline Urtez, Assistant Program Coordinator at 1736 Family Crisis Center also congratulated the graduates. “You are the real stars here and it is incredible how much you dedicated yourselves to learn in this ten week computer program. I hope this class is beneficial for both you and your family’s personal and professional goals in the future.”

Silvia Guillen, on behalf of KCCD, congratulated the graduates. “I would like to congratulate you. You have taken a big step and we are proud of you guys for making it. We are very pleased to be partner with 1736 Family Crisis Center and we look forward to continuing the partnership.”

Student Testimonials
Students shared testimonies and made PowerPoint presentations to display their accomplishments and newly acquired skills. These skills included applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Internet, as well as information on websites that provide resources in identifying drug use, college funding, and avoiding predatory attacks on social media and the Internet.

Ms. Moton, a student from the English computer class shared, “I’ve benefited from taking advantage of opportunities that are here. I am happy that I had the opportunity to learn how to use a computer so that I can pass on my knowledge to my children and be able to help them with their work. I was able to make a PowerPoint presentation for the class and I will be able to use my skills at work. I will keep on learning about computer because they play a big part in our lifestyle.”

Xonhitl Vasquez
“I am really grateful that I had the opportunity to come here and that there is resources like this available for people like us. I have never been much of a computer person, preferring books instead, but I found it very necessary for my school, my homework, and for day to day life, since everything is online and everyone communicates through email.”

Special Thanks
KCCD would like to thank CA Assemblymember Miguel Santiago for providing certificates that were given to the graduates. Special thanks to all our partners including 1736 Family Crisis Center, One Million New Internet Users, Community Union, California Public Utilities Commission, California Emerging Technology Fund and the City of Los Angeles for making the Community Empowerment through Technology classes possible.

Congratulations to all the Graduates!
