The Mexican Institute of Greater Houston (MIGH) is a significant contributor to Community Development because we are increasing our student’s workforce skills so they can opt for better paid jobs. MIGH offers Basic Computer Technology Literacy Education for Adults. It is taught in English and Spanish and reaches parents through the schools attended by their children (K-12). We have been educating at risk LEPs about the benefits of using computers at home and at work, teaching them several software packages. Our programs primarily serve parents (80% woman/20% men) of school-aged children throughout the State of Texas. Carlos J. Lopez, President spoke about their Computer Literacy Courses for Adults.
