Workshops

FREE Digital Parents Program

Interested in participating? Call us at (512) 900-0304 or email Gabryella Desporte, program coordinator, at gabryella@latinitasmagazine.org

Padres Digitales (Digital Parents) is a FREE bilingual digital literacy program oriented towards adults to learn essential computer literacy skills that can help them in their everyday lives and careers.  

Parents will utilize the Latinitas computer lab space to attend an 8-week program.  Classes will be divided into two, four-week sets of lessons and activities. 

  • Weeks 1-4 will focus on computer use essentials, like Internet/email basics, and Mac and PC operating systems
  • Weeks 4-8 will focus on Microsoft Suite, information literacy, and career searching.  

We hope that by bridging the gap between generations within this digital literacy program, we create stronger bonds between participants that allow parents to feel more confident in their working computer knowledge skills. 

Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a gift card incentive and a certificate outlining their accomplishments as a credential signed off my Latinitas and other supporting partners, and will be given post-program resources. 

Tech Familia is a series of FREE Saturday workshops for the whole familia!  The mission of this program is for families and children to engage in technology-based activities and create a storytelling project using high tech tools and platforms.
