First Event on April 19th

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to announce our first event for Free Computer Labs!!

The event is aimed at those who are interested in attending Free Computer Labs (FCL) classes, and would like to know more about the program. We will be doing some introductory activities. Namely, we will take a peak inside a computer: what is inside, what are its parts and how does it work? We will ask prospective students what they are interested in learning from the classes: what do you want to learn at FCL? Lastly, we will have some time to mingle over light snacks and refreshments; let's have fun!!!

Hope to see you there! Devin and Julian of FCL

Welcome to Free Computer Labs.

Free Computer Labs (FCL) is a grass roots project to bring computers to people in the community that need them. FCL aims to connect those who need computers with powerful technology and software.

FCL is open to everyone who wants to learn who to use, understand, and even fix computers in a friendly environment. No previous knowledge needed.
