Dropout: 'First thing I ever finished' 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rose Levesque, a shy welfare recipient shown in our  video, got poor grades in school. She dropped out . Then the Suffolk County Labor Department suggested 12 weeks of computer training with LINCT. Read LINCT success stories to learn what happened next.

Bridging the educational and digital divides

Watch a video in Windows Media to see LINCT in action. Then check out test scores documenting results. We're built on three key precepts:

  • Learn and earn. Successful trainees earn the computers they use to develop literacy in English and technology.
  • Time dollars. LINCT trainees can earn Time Dollars to exchange for other services or goods such as computers and printers.
  • eLearningSpace. We're using the Web to improve home and school learning in a cost-effective way.
