The Digital Miracles Conference 2001 is now accepting presenter abstracts to help promote, support, and encourage community partnerships that serve to connect under-served groups in Philadelphia neighborhoods to computer technology resources such as Information Technology (IT) specialists, computer technology centers (CTCs), computer recycling training programs, etc.
The conference, Neighborhood Transformation and Connectivity in Philadelphia's Digital Age, will be Saturday, April 28, at Community College of Philadelphia, 9:30 a.m.- 2:30 p.m.
"Digital Miracles" are the people in academic, corporate, faith, government and nonprofit institutions that come together to help advance family, commuity, and neighborhood development in Philadelphia neighborhoods with the creative use of technology.
