Louis E. Brown Public Computer Center Volunteers Become Computing Coaches

absolute-beginners-louis-e-brown-pccThe Virgin Islands Next Generation Network (viNGN) presented the workshop “Introduction to Absolute Beginners Computer Lab” on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at the Louis E. Brown Villas Public Computer Center (PCC) on St. Croix.

This “Train the Trainer” session is designed to guide PCC volunteers and other interested individuals in administering the 1-hour course, a collective work that introduces core computing concepts to limited and new users.

“We wanted to provide the first ‘Train the Trainer’ for ‘Absolute Beginners’ at Louis E. Brown because the PCC Site Manager, Ana Maysonet-Santiago, has been so committed to encouraging community volunteers at the PCC, regardless of skill level,” said viNGN outreach leader Anita Davis.

Property Manager for the McCormack Baron Management-run Louis E. Brown Apartments Ana Maysonet Santiago acts as the Site Manager for the Public Computer Center in addition to her many other daily duties. Her desire to see residents achieve success in their lives is apparent. Her enthusiasm and sparkling demeanor are encouraging.
Santiago not only recruits volunteers, but goes the extra mile by offering herself as a mentor.
