Programs: community empowerment
The Magic Johnson Foundation’s Community Empowerment Centers provide ethnically diverse urban communities access to resources and programming that educate, empower and strengthen individuals though the innovative use of technology.
"So many people take computer technology for granted because it's such a major part of our society now, but imagine not having the education or access to computers, "Low-income African-American and Latino children are at risk of being left behind and overlooked for jobs because they have not received the education and training like other ethnic groups. But, thanks to organizations that have a strong sense of responsibility my Foundation can come into the community and provide the necessary training and education that kids may not be getting otherwise."
