This project investigated computer training opportunities in the Worcester Youth Center, with collaboration of the UMass/Memorial Health Center. In particular, we studied computer training of their high-risk youth population. This study involved planning, designing and teaching computer skills to grade-schoolers in the youth center. We utilized their feedback to propose how future computer training programs in the center could run to maximize their success. The teaching portion of this project proved that achievable assignments, personal and interactive teaching, smaller and redundant steps were extremely effective in teaching a high-risk youth population.
