community organization in east Baltimore called, Historic East Baltimore Community Action Coalition
(HEBCAC) and the Center for Community Technology Services(CCTS). The goal of L@TCH is to
distribute a home computer to every Baltimore city student who does not have one. Those of us who

center.

be interested in leading class demonstrations for students. We would ask the volunteers to talk a little
bit about the program and demonstrate some of the fun learning software that comes loaded on the
LATCH computers. The demonstrations would be only 15 minutes and we ask our volunteers to do 3- 6
demonstrations in one day. We are willing to offer a stipend of $20 per 15 minutes demonstration. You do
not have to be a tech geek to help us, we just need someone who knows a little bit about computers and
is not afraid of public speaking! For more information visit our website: everyfamilyconnected.org
